Contraception :: Injection To Nexplanon

Dec 15, 2015

I went onto the injection in 2005 and was on that for 9 years due to migraines etc the doctor advised me to have the nexplanon inserted and i've now been on this a year. Tbh i think i'm lucky i've only ever had one period and that was just after my injection started in 2005 so nothing for 10 years. Before the injection my periods were clockwork every 28 days for 5 days at a time. Just wondered now i'm on the nexplanon how long would it take for everything to come back to normal after i've had it removed. I'm thinking of having it removed late 2016 to try and start my own family.

Contraception :: Nexplanon 3 Years Passed

I had the Implanon for 3 years and had it replaced for the Nexplanon around 2.5 years ago. I haven't had periods since having these implants except for a bit of spotting during the change over. Yesterday however I have started having a period. Not as heavy as I used to have them when not on any contraception but much more than just spotting. I am concerned that it has stopped working as I am a few months off having it changed. I have gained a lot of weight this year from stress and I have read that having an increased weight can cause it to stop working early. Could this be the case? And should I arrange to go to the clinic to have it changed?

How Soon Can I Get Nexplanon Removed? Not Right For Me

So, November 21st 2014, I got the nexplanon implant birth control so that I would be able to be with my partner without any worry of children. It seemed like the perfect decision at the time. Three years from now I will still not be ready most likely and I don't have to remember to take a pill every day or anything. What a dream, right! No. I was very wrong. The nexplanon may work for some people but for me, so far, it has been terrible. I know that it's new chemicals in my body but I've been vomiting non stop. I can't get out of bed anymore and I'm sleep deprived due to mind numbing headaches. I've also been bleeding everyday but that's not really what worries me the most. I can deal with the bleeding but with the vomiting and headaches? No! That's not what I signed up for. So my question is how soon can I get this removed? I have an appointment for a check up on December 4th but will I have to wait for my arm to heal up before they can numb it again and take it out?

Birth Control (Nexplanon) Spotting

I had my birth control (Nexplanon) inserted at the beginning of March, and had somewhat normal periods, coming once a month. I did just have a regular period about 3 weeks ago, and then last week I had two days of spotting, and that was it, and then the spotting came back yesterday and is gone now. Sometimes they are accompanied by mild cramps, nothing too bad though. I've also gained 4lbs in the past week, and I've been the same weight for about 5 years now. I have been having unprotected sex since I've had it in, and I'm not quite sure why my symptoms are the way they are!

Trying To Conceive After Nexplanon Removed (4 Months)

I had my Nexplanon taken out about 4 months ago and I had a period about 2 months later . It was a normal period for me. Lasted about 5 days and wasn't too heavy and wasn't too light and not a whole lot of cramping which is typical for me as well. I have been trying to conceive so I have been having unprotected sex hoping for some pregnancy symptoms . I figured it would take a while for my body to get back into the swing of things so after I had my first period since Nexplanon I started tracking everything such as ovulation and my fertile days. I am 13 days late and have taken many pregnancy tests and they are all negative. I do not have pregnancy symptoms except the fact my period is late. No nausea or sensitive breasts. But why is my period so late ? I have a little bit of cramping that started on the 12th day my period was late. Could there be a bigger issue or is this normal ?

Birth Control :: I Have Nexplanon, Can I Vape?

The e-juices I bought are nicotine free and I emailed the website to ask what the other ingredients are : Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, and added flavors.

I most definitely do not want to put myself in any kind of danger. If anyone could help, that would be great, thank you.

Birth Control :: Nexplanon And HCG Shot

I have the nexplanon implant for Birth control and I recently started getting weekly injections of HCG from my weight dr. Prior to this I haven't had a period but 2.5 weeks ago I had a small period and 2 days ago I started bleeding heavily. I want to make sure that there isn't a drug interaction between the two that would cause a failure in my birth control, and also of this is going to be a reoccurring thing, because if so I will stop the injections. I have been bleeding heavily and cramping very bad this time and I would just like it all to ca down. I also was also just told I have hypothyroidism and j saw that can cause irregular bleeding but the periods really just started not long after I started the injections

Birth Control :: Pregnant, While On Nexplanon?

I have had the nexplanon implant for a little over a year. Also, I have never had regular periods.

Last month(march)I had what I believed to be 3 separate periods. Almost exactly 11 days apart each. This month( April), I had one short 3 day period. And now my period tracker says im 11 days date for my expected period. I haven't had any menstrual cramps that I usually have.

Me and my boyfriend have been in a dry spell, these last couple months. but I believe the last time we had sex was January or February.

I have had heartburn like crazy, tender breasts, Lightheadedness, and am very fatigued.

None of which I really noticed, until the last 2 weeks.

Could I be pregnant?

Birth Control :: Nexplanon And Bleeding After Every Sex

I had the Nexplanon put in Dec.2015. Everything's been great except for the fact that EVERY TIME I have sex with my partner of 10 years I end up bleeding. It never fails. Sometimes it lasts a day sometimes a few days there's never any knowing. I have an appt with my GYN to find some answers but I'm update on all my paps which have always been normal and no STDs. I figured before my appointment Id see if anyone else has this problem or had and does it ever go away?

Birth Control :: Nexplanon Opposite Effects

I've been using the implanon for a year now I've had it before and that first time I had no periods at all for a whole year got it removed due to weight gain. This time has been at the opposite I'll have my period and continue spotting the whole month until I get my period once again. Most of the time the spotting is really light but a few day ago I've had a lot of cramps not a lot of spotting but ones I go to the bathroom to pee I have notice little blood clots in the urine. I have made an appointment with my doctor next week for a regular check up. But I do feel a little bit worried it'll be somethings bad! Do you guy think is normal ?
