Pregnancy after jadelle removal

I had jadelle implants for 5 years and removed the implants in May 2013 and up till now I am still not pregnant. I have had normal menstral cycles after removal and still cant understand why i cant get pregnant. How soon will the effects of Jadelle wear off so i can become pregnant ## After having it in your system for 5 years, it can take awhile for you to be able to get pregnant again, once it has been removed. Jadelle is still a hormonal contraceptive that prevents ovulation, so it's likely that you're not even ovulating yet, so soon after its removal. I'd suggest getting an ovulation test kit to see if you are, or not. Have you consulted your doctor for advice? ## thank you for the response. I did go to see my doctor and he recommended i start taking a fertility drug Clo...

Missing jadelle

I had jadelle implanted july 2015, and recently one of the rods started comming out.. I went to the doctor and only had that one removed.. Will its still have the same affect with just one as to having two rods?? Or can i get pregnant ? ## The nurse only put one rod in for me a year ago instead of two and I thought it was normal till now!!!!!! - a year and a half later. Somehow havent fallen pregnant thank god..... going to nurse in an hour to see if they believe me. They all think im crazy ## Hello Kelly, What a crazy story! I can't believe that one of them just started to pop out. I hope it didn't hurt too badly. According to the manufacturers webpage both containers of Jadelle need to be in your arm. The reason for this is that both of them are given a certain amount of levon...

is it possible to get pregnant while on jadelle

I started spotting 3 months after having jadelle inserted. It continued for 1 month and have stopped for 2 weeks now. I sometimes have strong stomach cramps and my body temperature has risen. Could I be pregnant? Pls help me. I am confused. ## I am 30 yrs old, I inserted Janelle 2 yrs ago. Then on the last day of my period I had intercourse. It was on the 2nd of august 2016. From that day on I didn't see my period again and now I'm not feeling myself. I'm vomiting, loosing weight, lacking appetite. Does that mean I'm pregnant? Plz help. ## The only way to know for sure is by having yourself checked for pregnancy, though it isn't very likely that you are, given that you have the Jadelle implant. Some women stop having periods, when using contraceptives, the U.S. FDA l...

pregnancy symptoms with jadelle

hey ladies. i wanted to know if anyone has had the same symptoms as me. iv got pelvic and lower back pain, nausea , dizzymes and sometimes i feel like i can feel kicking andwhat feels like baton hicks ## If you are actively engaging in intercourse, there is always a risk of getting pregnant. Using a contraceptive, such as this, just helps lower your risk, but it doesn't do away with it entirely. The only full proof method to prevent pregnancy with 100% reliability is abstinence. Thus, the only way to get an answer to your question is by having yourself checked for pregnancy. Have you consulted your doctor? ## not been to the Dr but i did do a test which came up negative but i can't shake the feeling of something being there ## Hi marshmellow, i get the same feelings the kicking,...

Pregnant after Jadelle removed

Hi, I was wondering that if you were unprotected during intimacy a few days before having the Jadelle removed could you fall pregnant? ## Hello, Missy! How are you? If it had expired by the time you were intimate, then yes, there would be a risk of pregnancy. However, if it was still within its normal period of protection, then no. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Jadelle as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and irregular bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I had just got my rods removed just 5 days ago, when will the side effects of the rods go away? ## They should eventually go away, but it may take a month or more. It can take awhile for your body to balance your hormones back out on its own. How are you feeling? ## I remove mine la...

trying to get pregnant after jadelle removal

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I had jandelle in for 3years. Had it removed in june 2016. Been trying to get pregnant. I have been told it can happen right away. But nothing yet? Is there something wrong with me? ## No, but it can take several months for your body to balance your hormones back out on its own, so that you begin to ovulate, according to the NIH. Other withdrawal effects, according to the U.S. FDA, may include irregular cycles for a few months, headaches, and irritability. Have you had any luck, yet? ## No luck yet. My period are irregular. Every 19 days now ive had it removed. With jadelle it use to be every 28 days. ## Hi, i had jadelle in for 3yrs and i removed it a year ago but i still can't conceive yet.

Side effects of Jadelle after removal

I had jadelle put in 6 months after I gave birth to my daughter and she is now a year and 10 months old, so I decided to take it off because I am planning to get pregnant but I have not seen my menstruation for 2 months now after I took it off. I feel really heavy in my tummy but I checked and am not pregnant, should I be nervous now or is it normal? ## Hi! How are you doing? Since Jadelle contains synthetic hormones to prevent pregnancy, it can take while for your body to balance back out on its own, once it's been removed and for ovulation to start occurring again. It can take several months in some women. If you don't start to cycle again soon, you may want to consult your doctor for assistance. ## before using jadelle implant for a year i was having irregular periods and aft...
