Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question. I am Dr.Mazumdar and I hope I'm able to help you with your medical problem today.

Implanon works by suppressing the ovaries to prevent ovulation. Lack of ovulation prevents pregnancies.

In most women, removal of the Implanon causes the ovaries to go back to ovulating again. But in some women, the ovaries may fail to ovulate regularly leading to either a complete lack of periods or irregular periods. In this case, the ovaries need to be stimulated by medicines like Clomid.

Please consult an Obgyn - you will need blood tests as well as an ultrasound of the uterus. Clomid will then need to be prescribed.

I hope this helps.

Thankyou for the quick response, can i buy clomid over the counter or do i need to get it prescribed

Melissa,

You will need a prescription, you cannot buy Clomid over the counter.
