I have made a doctors appointment for this coming Friday for my implanon to be removed. I first had it inserted on January 23rd this year. DH have decided to start TTC for our second (and last) baby after our wedding anniversary in September.

I just wanted to know if anyone had an issues TTC after having the implanon removed? DD was conceived after two months of TTC after I came off the pill.

Thanks in advance  happy.gif

I had mine removed after 3 years in August last year. After that, I went on the pill for 2 months, stopped taking the pill and was pregnant a few weeks later original.gif

I have heard of so many horror stories where women find it extremely hard to conceive after getting the implanon removed. That is my biggest fear at the moment, that and actually getting the implanon removed  laughing2.gif

Thanks for your insight. I hope I am lucky in that sense!

Ok people, I'm new to the site... Need help. Well I have an 11 yr old. Now ttc after yrs of contraception. Had implant removed 13th Oct 2012, got AF 13th Nov 2012, next AF 21st Dec 2012, had spotting brownish hardly needed panty liner for 2 days on 10th Jan 2013. But no proper period since 21/12/12. I took 2 preg test BFN! Haven't done a test for about a week or so. Me and my partner do the deed pretty much daily sorry (tmi) but my point is... No probs there. Has anyone else had there cycle messed up from impalanon/nexaplanon? Hard to know what my normal cycle should be as did not bleed while on depo or implant (total 7ish yrs- no period)! Help!

Hi dollsandtrucks, sounds like we could be in a similar boat! I had mine removed on the same day, so I'll keep you posted!

Would be my first though (not sure if that makes a difference or not).

I had my implanon removed on 12/12/12. My first "cycle" was counted starting from a withdrawal bleed, so not sure if I should count that as a cycle or not... if you do, this is cycle 2, if you dont, this is cycle one. I guess we can wait and see together!

Good luck! And baby dust to us original.gif

Implanon effects are quickly reversed after removal, ie you could conceive pretty much straight after it comes out, so if people are having trouble conceiving, that's probably not due to implanon. The OCP may take a couple of months to reverse, ie for ovulation to return, and with the depo injections, they say up to 9 months for ovulating again, SO with implanon, you shouldn't have a worrry!!

It doesn't hurt at all when its comes out it just feels different....

I was pg within a month of it coming out and i had it in for 3yrs.

I had implanon for 6 years (2 different ones - 3 years each( - currently 29 weeks pregnant. Conceived after first proper cycle after having it removed. I too had heard of people having issues after having it removed and was worried but in my personal experience I had no issues at all.

Good luck with your journey!

If you have had implanon removed you may not get AF before you fall PG.

Like people who BF and use that as contraception, the thing is generally you ovulate BEFORE you get AF, so it is possible to go from one PG to another without having an AF.

Posted 17 April 2013 - 11:55 AM

Thanks! I am hoping to achieve that! Although it took 6 months to fall with #1 and 13 to fall with #2. DH has said we can try till the end of the year but that's it. If it's meant to be it will be!

I am going to make sure we try at least ever second day JIC I ovulate before AF arrives!

Thanks original.gif

Hi just looking for some opinions. Had my implanon removed 9/4. Have DTD every 2nd day since.  Had some brown spotting 12, 13 & 14th only when wiping though. Im experiencing some symptoms which could either be pre pregnancy (too early I would think) or withdrawal or even af returning. Wondering when to test as im unsure when I would have ov'd. Any ideas? Obv I will just keep waiting for my af aswell but the waiting is killing me lol. Would just like to hear if anyone experienced similar

Just popping in to let everyone know it took 1 month for me to get AF back after having the implanon out.

We dtd pretty much every second day but no luck!

I wasn't really expecting to fall straight away anyway! Just glad AF arrived so I can finally get on to trying! Yay!

Hi everyone!    
I'm counting down untill I get my implanon removed on Monday 20th!! We will be TTC our third child. So excited and so clucky biggrin.gif DD1 is 5 1/2 and DD2 is 2 1/2. We really would like to conceive asap as well. We have a 3 yr age gap between our two DD's and if we conceive straight away (unlikely I know) but then we will be aiming for a 3 1/2 yr age gap. I just had my AF with implanon in and I would be ovulating Tuesday, but cos implant will be removed the day before I wonder what affect that will have? I love reading some of you conceived just after having it removed. Gone baby mad atm.

I can't quite believe it ladies but I am pregnant ddance.gif BFP.gif !

1 month trying! I am blown away!

Took me 6 months to conceive my 1st, 13 months for my 2nd!

I have been taking Royal Jelly tablets as well as Bee Pollen Tablets and been drinking a good amount of Honey and Cinnamon. I have read so much about honey etc being a positive thing and for me it may have worked!

All the best ladies!
