How long does it take to get periods after removing implanon ?

Hi. I had my implanon removed beginning of march (2012) as me and my husband started trying for our second baby but I ve not had a period at all. I had it put in last march and in that 1 year I had a 5 week period from july into august and then nothing but after having it removed I thought my periods would go back to normal. Its now nearly 4 months and nothing, I keep doing pregnancy tests but they re coming back negative. It s really frustrating as I feel if there s no period, there s no ovulation , hence no pregnancy. My GP keeps fobbing me off by saying its early days give it time maybe because my menstrual cycle has always been irregular prior to pregnancy. Please could you advice me on what I could do, why i m not having a period and what treatments are available including natural remedies. Thank You, King Regards, AAAAA

Dear Sohila,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Presuming your cycles were regular in the past before implanon insertion, the current period of amenorrhea (absent period) is related to hormonal changes induced the implant. These changes usually reverse in 2-6months time. Sometimes we use regular combined oral contraceptive pill briefly for 3-4 months to get the cycles back to normal.

Since you are trying to conceive and periods are yet to happen, I would suggest you to consult a competent gynecologist. He/she can plan a few blood tests like serum FSH levels, ultrasound scans and put you on regular birth pills.

Hope this helps.

Warm Regards
