I've been off Implanon for 3 months, have pregnancy signs, but negative tests. What should I do?

You mentioned that you were using the Implanon for contraception and had it removed 3 months ago, but you’ve been having some suspicions of pregnancy, and you took home pregnancy tests (all of which have been negative), and you’re wondering “What do I do now?” After having the Implanon removed, studies have shown that 90% of women ovulate in 3 to 4 weeks. That means that you could get pregnant the first time you ovulate if you have unprotected sex at just the right time. Now the first sign of pregnancy is a missed period. So you did well, because you were suspicious of pregnancy, to take a home pregnancy test. Because it was negative, it’s hard to know exactly where you’re at in your cycles if you haven’t had them yet after discontinuing the birth control. So my advice to you is to wait another 1 or 2 weeks and take another test, and if that one is still negative, then chances are very great that you’re not pregnant.

The only other possible scenario is that you haven’t been pregnant in the past, but if you were to get pregnant now, and take a test in 2 weeks, it could be positive. It takes at least 2 weeks from conception, in most cases, for you to get a positive pregnancy test. So that’s why I recommend taking one in another couple of weeks, or every 1 to 2 weeks until you’re not suspicious of pregnancy anymore. For example, if you have a period, then you can be pretty confident that you’re not pregnant. If at anytime you have more questions or concerns about your situation, don’t hesitate to call your doctor. They’ll ask you more specific questions and be able to determine if testing is warranted in your situation. And if you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.
