OK seems like there are a few of us TTC that have had the Implant removed, so thought it would be nice to have an official thread so we can all track how we are doing, and share experiences, and hopefully get questions answers.
Well I only had my implant removed on the 11th of Nov this years, after having it in since March. At the time I had it in I was no sure when we were going to TTC a second, and as life was so hectic with a baby I felt sure I would forget to take the pill if I went back to that. So Implanon seemed like the ideal solution at the time, and the doctor assured me that my fertility would return almost immediately after having it removed. The whole time I had the implant in I have not had a period.
However since then, and planning on a second child I have done a bit more research on the internet and found it can sometimes take months for AF to even return, so this has cause me some concern.....
So far I have not had a withdrawal or AF, but it has only been two weeks odd. But I have been doing OPK's and this week got positive on them so am hoping that this is a sign that things will return to normal fairly quick.
Hope this thread will become useful to all of us

Thanks for making the thread, I had mine out around the same time as you and still waiting for AF to arrive. My Dr said it should be out of my system within 48 hrs so fingers crossed me and OH have something special to celebrate at xmas or New Year
Hey I replied to your other post before the suggestion to make an official thread cropped up !
Anyway, I had Implanon removed on the 7th of September after 6 months (tried to get it out after 3 months because I had awful side effects- basically everything imaginable !) And had a withdrawal bleed on the 10th, so after 3 days. Then a had a 'proper' period on the 19th of October, 39 days after the withdrawal bleed. I was hoping the 39 days could be a guideline as to when my periods would be, but it's now been 40 days since my October AF and I'm not even spotting ! I did have pains a few days ago until about friday or yesterday, but they've just.. Dissapeared ! What the heck ? Any similar experiences ?
By the way, been NTNP for about 8 days now and am on Pregnacare Conceive because me and OH were going to start 'officially' trying to TTC after AF. Surely there's no way I'm pregnant already.
I had my implanon removed on the 25th of this month and have yet to have an withdrawal bleed, I've had constant on and off crampin since its come out but no sign of any bleeding.
My periods have never been regular, they have always been every 6-10 weeks, or anywhere inbetween, so its hard for me to tell when I should expect it next. I was told that fertillity would return to normal as soon as it was removed, and the OH and I did the night I had it taken out lol, Although I'm pretty sure nothing would happen this soon especially without a withdrawal bleed or anything, or perhaps im being naive lol
Hi, I've already posted on a couple of over threads about ttc after implanon, but wanted to join to "official" one! Had implanon out on the 20th October, followed a couple of weeks later by a 3 day withdrawl bleed. Had my "proper" AF on the 23rd November, which lasted 5 days, so am currently on CD7.
I only had the implant in for 6 months, and I hated it! The only positive was no periods, but I had really bad side effects with it, nausea, extreme tiredness, painful breasts, so was quite glad to get it removed. Before that was on cerazette, and also no periods, and can't actually remember what my cycle was like before BC!
Am going to start OPK'ing this cycle, might start testing tomorrow in case I miss it!
woohoo a thread just on the implanon.on the 21st of oct, i had my implanon removed, also like you all i was told everything can return back to normal within 48hours.well 5weeks later i had af which lasted 3-4days.so not too long at all.then a week later i had the tiniest little bit of spotting along with cramps which these lasted about 1hour or so.
i had the implanon in for 1yr and 1month.at the time of getting it in me and oh had not planned on ttc until we were both completely ready for another.
now is that time, and i think i am more stressed this time than i was when ttc 1#.with 1# it took 3months so im not quite expecting everything to happen this quick.but i would at least like my body back to normal.
bless my poor oh, last night after dtd he had my legs straight up in the air.i think he is getting worse than me.though today i am getting some cramping again.wouldnt it just be great if we all knew what was actually happening in are bodies.
i was speaking to my friend who had the implant in over 3years ago now.she got it taken out so she could ttc.well she had a cycle not long after it was removed and she had managed to get pregnant after that.though i know she does do handstands etc after dtd lol she is so funny.though she does now have 2 gorgeous girls.#1 is 2yrs and #2 is 4months now.
I am now on CD42. Did a test this morning just in case- . It's really upset me because not only am I not expexting our little one yet, it means It really is just my cycle that's messed up and not that I'm pg ah well. I hope AF shows up soon ! X
