About a week ago I had got a pencillin shot for having tonsillitis and had unprotected sex. Now its 2 weeks since my shot and I'm feeling pregnant. Could pencillin affect the implanon?
Yes. You could get pregnant after receiving Penicillin while using Implanon. Antibiotics reduce the effectiveness of Implanon and you should use a back up method when using antibiotics. You might want to purchase a pregnancy test and also talk to your OB-GYN Dr. If you are indeed pregnant they will need to remove the Implanon if you plan to continue the pregnancy.
