So yay... I got all my results back, and recieved my all clear, so now I can get my implanon on 11/3/11. My question is what can I expect when I get it. And also if any one has ever gotten pregenant while on it.

Hello,
During implanon insertion, Local anaesthetic is applied to the upper arm, and then a needle-like applicator is used to insert the implanon rod under the skin. The procedure can take less than a minute.

Side effects are similar to oral contraceptive pills and include irregular periods or prolonged bleeding, headaches, acne, weight gain and abdominal pain. Like other contraceptives, it is not 100% safe and pregnancy can occur but the chances are very less.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
