    Default Pregnancy-like symptoms but not pregnant - what could it be?

    The last week or so I have been getting pregnancy-like symptoms, which I guess are related to hormonal changes. They include sore breasts, "migraines" (which I usually only get when pregnant) and skin break outs. I have an implanon in so can't be pregnant. Plus I had a regular AF a few weeks ago. I have never really had issues like this before - My AF is usually regular and I don't get many issues related to that or hormone changes that I am aware of. So, what could it be? Do I need to see a GP? Or do I just deal with it for a while longer and see what happens? The migraines are driving me crazy as I can't study/drive for long periods without feeling horribly sick.

    My guess is it's related to implanon or ovarian cysts. I get the same but I'm using mirena. I have used implanon as well and mine started after it was removed.

    Definitely see a gp. At least then it's all logged on their system do they can see you have a history if they do something about it

    Thanks for your reply. I have had the implanon in for 2.5 years and this has only just started. I wonder if it could still be related to the implanon. Ovarian cysts don't sound nice!

    Mine started about the same time they discovered cysts and a fibroid. I think they said it's more related to the cysts though some my fibroid had shrunk to nothing. My sister also gets it and she has cysts too. Although since getting the mirena it hasn't been too bad apart from the occasional migraine. Honestly, other than a bit of pinching a couple times a month, I wouldn't really know I had any cysts before or after mirena. For others though it can be painful.
