Is it normal for the contraceptive implant to itch?

Itching is a normal stage in healing, but the very small incision used to insert the implant means there shouldn't be much itching. You may be having a reaction to the anesthetic or the disinfectant used to clean the area prior to insertion. Contact your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.

Itching is not a common complaint with the contraceptive implant. If you're having this symptom soon after insertion, you may have had a reaction to the disinfectant or bandage.

How do you put on weight?

It is important to eat meals high in protein, for example, chicken breasts, turkey, milk, eggs, cheese, steak,etc. It is important to eat every 2-3 hours to boost your metabolism and so your body responds by breaking down food faster. Also it is very important to weight lift, so as to shock your body and have it start converting the protein that you are consuming into muscle fibers which will lead to a weight gain. Also treat yourself to some chocolates, chips to gain some extra fat :P Eat lots of potatoes, onions and garlic um well to be honest i dont know all i can say is eat heaps of food and wait at leasta hour before you start moving around!

Drug Side Effects

Is there any contraceptive available without the side effects of weight gain?

Condoms and spermicide, or a diaphragm and spermicide... most of the hormone supplements they use as contraceptives have a slight water retention/weight gain side effect. You can offset it fairly easily by diet and exercise; consider the health benefits to using each contraceptive (and seriously, for most women a couple pounds are not going to make much of a difference in how attractive they are. Most guys like a little softness.)

If unfortunately you were to fall pregnant with an implanon in would it still being there effect results of store bought test?

If you become pregnant on implanon you might as well tell an alien! I became pregnant and no one believed me. I could feel the symptoms and my stomach growing. I took an at home pregnancy test and it came out negative and I went to the hospital and they came out negative I even had a doctor make me cry when she said "Listen your not pregnant so its done" They didnt even check to see what was wrong with me!!! No one would give me an ultrasound and finally I had it removed and tada they found out I was pregnant!!! If you are 100% sure your pregnant the easiest thing is to have it removed just in case and have an ultrasound done that's the 100% sure way to know!
