Ive been on the implant since july 6th,i bled for 3 weeks,one heavy,2 light, i wasnt on my period when i had it inserted(6weeks after having my baby) i didnt get my period after having my baby. I had sex with out additional method 2 weeks after insertion but im worried as alot of people bleed up to 3 months non stop and i stopped after 3weeks! Could i be pregnant?
Hi kate and welcome to DC. You should be fine if your first time having unorotected sex was at least 7 days after its insertion. You are protected immediately if it was implanted between days 1 and 5 of your menstrual cycle requiring no backup method.
So, if you are saying you waited 2 weeks after its insertion before having unprotected sex then you should be fine. Don't worry about your period or how it relates to others. If you are that concerned, contact your doctor. I see no need for that unless your timing is off or perhaps it was a lot sooner than 2 weeks when you had unprotected sex... In that case, it would be important to inform your doctor.
