... me being pregnant. Also I started bleeding light since yesterday
You can't count on the implant, and the bleeding can be caused by the same reason. Your implant is expired. You have to act like its not protecting you anymore.
The Implanon is guaranteed to work at 100% capacity for 3 years but does work for 4 years (it says so on many medical websites surrounding the implanon). (It's also similar to other medicines in that it, guaranteed to work 100% but after expiry studies show that they can still work at 95% capacity for example).
Being on the Implanon myself to reduce the pain of my periods, I've had light periods since getting the implant about 6 months ago and after seeing the doctor about it, he told me it was perfectly well within the parameters of protection.
