I've got good news for you - the Nexplanon is 99.97% effective at preventing pregnancy. It's even more effective than having your tubes tied! So between you having the Nexplanon and a negative pregnancy test, I feel pretty confident saying that you are NOT pregnant.

That being said, the Nexplanon works by releasing hormones thoughout your body. The symptoms that you are describing (increased appetite, cramping, nausea and nipple sensitivity) can certainly be side effect of the hormone being released by the Nexplanon. If you were sitting in front of me in the office I would tell you that you are experiencing side effects of the Nexplanon, and you are not pregnant! By the way the best medicine for cramps or breast pain is Advil or Motrin, not Tylenol, so give that a shot if you're still in pain.

Any more Qs I can answer?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
