  • go and see your GP, sometimes your mind plays tricks on you and its awful!! it could be your body making changes as it does every month. but speak to your GP and see if he/she can do a test for you.. good luck :) x

  • I had symptoms of pregnancy due to coming off the pill. Took a while for the hormone balance to right itself. Bluebelle is absolutely right - visit your doctor. An accurate diagnosis will help settle your head, which in my case helped settle the hormones.

  • I had the implant removed on 18th June and the doctor advised my period would take about 2-3 weeks to arrive. After 6 weeks and no period and a number of pregnancy tests I tested yet again on 2/8/12 and still negative. Only symptom I had was extremely painful tender breasts for about 2 weeks. I haven't had a period since 2006 due to various contraceptions, so thought I must have been due the mother of all periods. Anyway I had a couple of tests left and done one on sunday, came back positive. Apparently I have caught my pregnancy very early on, only 1-2 weeks pregnant but very happy :)

Thanks for your reply.

  • I had my implant removed yesterday, and we are keen to start planning a family. The dr said that I should expect a period in 4-5 weeks (haven't had any since first implant 7 years ago) However she said that if we were to try this week, we could quite possibly be pregnant next week, before even getting a period. So it is nice to hear that it has happened for others. I was also wondering how soon after intercourse that it would show on a pregnancy test? x
