... have it. In august, I had my normal period (from the 2nd til the 7th). A week later I had a period again for almost a month(August 16th til September 12th). I haven't had my period since, but I have had unprotected sex since then. Is there any possibility I could be pregnant? or is it because I need to get it out of my arm already?
She is absolutely right. Once you are past your change date, you cannot rely on the implant to protect you any longer. Implanon secretes hormones over the course of 3 years, once that three years is up, the device is depleted and cannot be relied upon as birth control. You are as likely to get pregnant as if you were using nothing since the time in March when the device was due to be changed. You should do a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant and get yourself to your Dr for a new device or another method if you are not pregnant. If you are, then you need to get the device removed because there is a possibility it is secreting some hormones even if it is not enough to prevent pregnancy and the fetus shouldnt be exposed to these extra hormones. Until you know for sure, you should use condoms and spermicide if you dont want to be pregnant.
Maybe just need to get it took in out I had mine since 2010 and it's 2014 I had it in a year longer then I was pose to if you are having sex with no protection yes get it out because you are goin to have the symptoms of a pregnant woman but it's just that you hormones are still reacting but the medication from the implanon might still have little affect I'm with my bf to no protection and no baby that's a good thing but need to get this thing out asap
