... third day of my period, I then finished my period on the Sunday 24/07/16, and then I had sexual intercourse on the following Tuesday unprotected 26/07/16 and I was wondering if I could be pregnant because I don't know if it's Implanon symptoms I've been having or pregnancy symptoms because they are similar and I haven't been sick yet but been feeling a bit sick but I think that's because I've been so nervous thinking about it and I've never had a child before so I'm confused because it said online if it's fitted during the first five days of your period you are protected, I've taken two pregnancy tests both said negative but it could be too early to take them, help?
If you had the implant placed within the first 5 days of the start of your period, you are protected from pregnancy right away and no need for back up protection. You are not pregnant. It is just side effects of the hormones, your body will adjust soon. It would be way way too early for any pregnancy symptoms anyway. So stop freaking out!! You have either trust your contraceptive or you're going to make yourself crazy! Implanon has a 99.9% efficacy rating meaning chances for pregnancy are less than 1%. You are wasting your money with pregnancy tests and you are worrying for no reason! Contraceptives are supposed to help you by allowing you to enjoy sex without worrying about pregnancy. Implanon is VERY effective-it is one of the best available because there is a lower chance of "user error" you just replace it on time and that's it. So Relax!!
