I am currently on the Implanon birth control and have been for over a year. I have read a lot about pregnancy on this birth control. I have been having food aversions and nausea, heart burn, and headaches. Is it possible that I could be pregnant?
Implanon is considered one of the most effective, reversible contraceptive methods. Less than 1 in 100 women become pregnant in the first year of use. In clinical trials over a 3 year period, less than 0.7% or women became pregnant. It is a small rod containing progestin, which is placed subdermal in the upper arm. It inhibits ovulation for up to 3 years.
