Trying to conceive

I'm hoping someone can help me! My last period started 16th July & ended on 25th August & this was my last period with implanon inserted. I had the implanon removed on 31st August as hubby & I are wanting to try for another bubz. I started bleeding within hours of getting implanon removed & bleeding lasted approx 5 days. My doc told me to go by my last period & not by that bleeding as it was prob breakthrough bleeding. We have been TTC since implanon removal. In the last week and a bit I have been feeling fluttery feelings almost every few hrs in the lower left of my belly, tiredness, breakouts, tired feet, weird cravings & eating much more & cramping. I was almost certain that I was pregnant. Then today 21st Aug I noticed some very light brown bleeding that has now gone slightly redder but not a deep red. Cycles are usually regular & every 35 days so my period was due tomorrow. I'm confused as I'm wondering if this is my period or is this implantation bleeding or is it my body trying to get back to normal after Implanon removal. Sorry if I'm a bit straight forward as this is my first ever post. Hope someone can help me or has been in the same or similar situation. Thank you

Did you do a HPT at all to rule out pregnancy?
Coming off bc can do all sorts of strange things to you and the symptoms you get while your body's sorting itself out can be just like pregnancy symptoms. It's really frustrating and confusing but you will get there. It does sound like it's your af come a day early which in some ways is good news as hopefully your body is getting back on track already. No harm in doing a test tho just to be sure.
If it is af then the important thing is to get to grips with your cycle for next month so you can work out when you are most fertile and give yourself the best chance of getting pregnant. Some people use temping and others ovulation test strips while some just observe their cm. It's a case of working out what suits you best. And - easier said than done - trying to stay relaxed about it all!

Hi Loobylou1. Thanks for your reply. Just realised that I wrote that my period started 16th July & ended 25th Aug. It actually ended 25th July (I'd prob strangle myself if my period lasted that long lol). I think you are right that my body is adjusting itself after implanon removal (had implanon for 8 months btw). My body adapts to change quite well, so in the meanwhile, I'll be relaxing as much as possible & trying to stay stress free. Feet up at every chance possible & just purchased an ovulation test with 10 tests in the box so will definitely be putting them to good use after my period has finished. In the last 12 hours the bleeding has become very heavy (my periods have always been heavy since age 13) & bleeding is bright red. 99.9% sure this is my period. I hope someone can send some baby dust my way

Lol I guessed that you meant July unless you were (a) v tolerant and (b) psychic!!
So fresh start this cycle. Keep an eye on things and hopefully you'll time it just right. Sending lots of baby dust!

ive been having crazy side effects with nexplanon. I finally had it removed on 18/11/15 after 7 months of non-stop periods (light, heavy, spotting- I had all sorts of period with only 1 or 2 breaks throughout the 7months). Before the implant I was pretty regular. I asked the nurse whether my period stop after having the implant removed, to which she replied 'it will (as the current bleeding I am experiencing isn't period as it caused by nexplanon hormones). Now 4 weeks on, I'm still on my period and extremely emotional with severe period pains. I don't want to get an extra pill from doctor to aid and stop the period as I have (stupid) silly fear that it will further reduce my fertility. I do not know what's going on with my body, and this implant is ruining my life. My husband and I want to start family. Im only 24years old

also, I wanted to ask, does ovulation only start after your first period.
