Having lower back pain. Pregnancy test negative. Had re-insertion of implanon. Normal bowel, urine. What is causing pain?

Hi, I have been having lower back pain for about a week now, with no period (about 3-4 days late). I have done four home pregnancy tests which have all been negative (in the last week). I had an old Implanon removed and a new one inserted about a month and a half ago. The pain feels like a band across the top of my butt, directly above where the butt cheeks finish along my back. I ve had normal bowel movements, although I do have some mild pain when I poo. Urine is fine.

Welcome to HCM

The lower back pain you are having is not due to urine or bowel problem but its origin also lies in the lower back. This pain is actually neurological which is cause by the nerve compression at the lumbar or sacrum level due to disc position problem. Simple NSAIDs are quite effective in pain.
you can use Diclofenic and vit B complex (OTC).
It is recommended to visit neurologist
