Hi All,

We are TTC#2, DS is 18months old and I had the Implanon Rod removed on the 31st May 2010.
I think I felt some O pain on the 6th June so we thought we'd "have a go".
While on Implanon my cycle was 31 days and based on this AF was due yesterday... so far now sign but I don't know if I can technically say I'm late as I haven't had a proper cycle yet.  How long before I should test? I want to do it now!!

I'd love to hear anyone who has had any experiences after Implanon was removed.

Hi, well I had my implanon removed on April 20 and we have been actively trying to TTC #1 since then. I've been temping. So far I seem to be having very short cyclrs, I had no regular cycles on implanon, more bleeding at random and in the last few months, almost continuous. I haven't used OPKs so far but will this month, I want to make sure I am actually ovulating (heard it can take a while).

I have heard of women who had the implanon removed and gave birth nne months and three days later, hoped I would be one of those but no. I hope for you your cycles get to normal quickly and you see that BFP.

I concieved my last baby 9 weeks after implanon removal. I have very definate Ovulation symptoms so knew thats what it was, I didnt actually have a period in between having the Implanon removed & concieving.

After falling pregnant twice after 3 mnths of trying the first 2 times and falling pregnant on the pill a third time...I had the implanon put in...Had it for 3 years had it removed to try for baby number 3 and 8 mnths and still trying.. sad.gif ...I believe my trouble conceiving now has everything to do with the implanon...

I hope you have better luck though.. original.gif

I had my implant taken out 3 months before TTC for both bubs. I fell pregnant straight away with both (lucky, I know). I was charting as soon as I got the implants out and am pretty sure I O'd within a couple of weeks of each of them being out. I had decided to take them out 3 months before TTC to give my body a chance to get back to normal. My doctor said it can take months sometimes.

Good luck.... I will be lurking to see your happy outcome!  original.gif

I fell pregnant within a week of having the implanon out. I know it doesn't always happen so quickly though.

I hope it happens quickly for you.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I'm still waiting for AF - was starting to feel tired and headachy today so I POAS just in case. BFN - I knew it was wishful thinking.

Oh well, I should have done a bit more research on Implanon before having it put in. I was breastfeeding DS at the time and kept forgetting to take the mini-pill so GP suggested it would be good. She told me that you usually ovulate a few days after taking it out so it wouldn't hinder my TTC for #2 as she new I would want to take it out at the 12 month mark.  I'm frustrated with myself because if I'd done some research and looked through the forums I probably wouldn't have gone that option. Oh well... all we can do is wait and see.

DS was conceived in our first month of TTC - I feel very very lucky. I guess I can't expect the same thing 2nd time around.

Don't worry Magsta,

obviously everyone is different....but for the majority of people, cycles return to normal much quicker after implanon removal then when ceasing the OCP.

I had mine removed on 15th of May, defiantly believed I ovulated a few weeks later based of CM and other symptoms...got 1st AF 25 days after removal even though I did not bleed once in the 5 years I had it in.

We are TTC #1 from this cycle.

Don't give up hope...I've heard of ppl getting pregnant before their AF even arrives after implanon.

Thanks J3NN1 - your words of encouragement calmed my mood and then I went to the loo and viola!...... AF has arrived!!

Now for the fun to begin wink.gif  We're "trying for a girl" this time round - so I'm going to aim for 3 days before O and see how that goes. This means I have to get the hang of all this "charting" stuff I've been reading up on, which was why I was anxious for my cycle to start original.gif .  

I'm not too fussed to be honest but DH is desperate for a little princess so for his sake I hope there is some truth to the theory.

Good luck with your TTC and entering the wonderful crazy world of parenting. DS cried for 30mins straight today during a hissy fit, but then at bedtime he snuggled into my lap while we read the bedtime story and gave me the most delicious cuddles and kisses and I realised all over again how completely in love I am with him and how it's worth all the "tearing- your-hair-out" moments.

Had Implanon removed for severe medical complications 18 months ago. Was told I would probably not be able to concieve again or would have major difficulties. Still took appropriate precautions 'just in case' and the one month we didn't ...

My cycle returned about 8 weeks after removal, though was VERY different to pre-implanon.

Hi guys

waves.gif kci88

Well it didn't happen for us in our 1st cycle..hopeful this month is the winner

So as you know it took 25 days for me to get 1st AF. First cycle was much shorter then expected, only 23days. Just finished my 2nd AF so Im now CD 5. Waiting for some online OPK's to arrive so I can try to pin O.

Don't worry girls AF will show up.


#16 Kci88

Posted 07 July 2010 - 11:06 AM

cant really do much until it shows..just waitttttt happy.gif

hopefully this is your month J3NN1

I had my implanon out on 26 May after 6 years (2 rods) and have yet to have AF after 6 weeks. I POAS yesterday and got a BFN so am going to keep going with my weight loss efforts as I dont know if my weight or implanon is causing the delay of AF. I am so desperate to be pg (have wanted to start TTC for a while now but needed to wait due to financial issues to do with building our own house).

Good luckto everyone

#18 Kci88

Posted 10 July 2010 - 03:28 PM

veryclucky - same here! sooo desperate to start TTC...its been four weeks on tuesday since i had implanon out and no signs of AF yet althought have had a niggling pain on the right side today similar to period pain...so MAYBE they will show up tonight or tomorrow? huh.gif

Hey,

I've bought OPK's, HPT and a thermometer from oracleferility.com.au However they haven't arrived yet. I bought them last weekend. I emailed the owner and she said they shipped on Monday so I should expect them tomorrow (I'm in Perth). The website was recommended by some members on EB....I know there are a few different ones though.  

Feeling very positive about this month though as I (TMI) have lots of EWCM today and have BD'ed the past 3 days!

WISH ME LUCK!

Hello All,

Just checking in - I had lost track of the thread (sorry new to the site and still working things out)

Good Luck J3NNI - Sending lots of Baby Dust!!

AFM - I couldn't get my maybe-baby ovulation checker to work at all this month. I used it first time round TTC DS#1 and it worked a treat and I got my BFP.gif first cycle. Now it wont show any fern patterns or even transition patterns. I don't know if this has anything to do with the impalon hormones still in my system...

I'm pretty sure I o'd on the 4th July. I had mega-mega stabbing pains on Sunday and loads of EWCM on Monday (sorry for the TMI). We'd had some BD on Thursday so now I'm in the lovely 2WW and trying not to drive myself nuts.

Will check back in next Sunday and advise my POAS results!

well its four weeks tomorrow since having implanon removed and no signs at all of AF showing up...sad.gif

im so damn impatient just wish it would hurry up already so i can get the ball rolling...

have cut out coffee and soft drinks completely from my diet hoping that would help a little but still nothing gahhh

sorry for the whinge just getting impatient at AF wink.gif

#25 magsta

Posted 13 July 2010 - 12:35 AM

Hey Kci88,

Don't be sorry, I know EXACTLY how you feel... I was so impatient waiting for AF to arrive and that was only 3 weeks. I say "only" but at the time it felt like longer, I think I'd have been borderline obsessed if it had taken another week.

Have you tried POAS again? In the end I was convinced I must have been PG so I did another test and that was enough for AF to arrive. I bought a 10 pack of ebay cheapy preg tests so that I can fulfil my obsession to test!

GOOD LUCK, I hope the witch arrives soon... or better still I hope you have a nice sweet-pea tucked away who just hasn't made their presence known yet Tounge1.gif
