After I had A, I got the Nexplanon. That was October 2016.
I am due to get it taken out in October 2018. 4 months.
I never really had any issues. I didn’t have side effects. It is placed perfectly in my arm and have had literally no complaints. Sporadic bleeding, usually after sex, would happen very rarely.
The past few months, I have been back to a fairly normal cycle (I have never been perfectly in sync) so I have had a small, nagging thought in the back of my head that “maybe it is ‘wearing off’.”
This past week I have been telling my husband my boobs are sore. Not putting 2 and 5 together, just thought that maybe my bra or something was being weird.
I randomly decided to look at my period app and turns out it was “late,” but again, I figured the implant was just doing what it was doing before, giving me no period.
Also, I have been wanting cream cheese, sour cream, or mayo. Constantly.
Today I had an idea that maybe this could be an issue. I started Googling it. Pregnancy on Nexplanon. I was lead to all sorts of forums where others have gotten pregnant while on Nexplanon. I mean, there were plenty of teens just questioning some really weird stuff too.
I looked at my application again. I had sex 4 weeks ago. Lord, help me.
Now I am sitting here, trying to tell myself it isn’t a thing. After reading everything. Plus, I don’t feel pregnant. So, I can’t be. There is a 1 in 100 chance of me being pregnant on the Nexplanon.
But on the other hand, I feel like I will be slightly disappointed if I test and it’s negative? Is that a thing?
Keep me in your thoughts, I guess.
