Thanks for posting your query.
The mild cramps and stomach aches with an implanon in situ might be suggestive a mild pelvic inflammation. Feeling thirsty and dizziness might be associated with the pelvic inflammation or may be due to other causes like anemia or electrolyte imbalance.
Your symptoms do need a detailed evaluation with the help of investigations like blood tests and abdominal ultrasound scan.
I encourage you to consult your gynecologist for a physical examination and necessary investigations so that treatment can be initiated early.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
