Hi. I got the Implanon insert a little over a week ago. I've been having unprotected sex since 2 days after I got it. I'm experiencing an intense burning right where my Implanon was put inserted. Is this a bad sign? What are the possibilities that I might be pregnant?
What part of your cycle did you have it put in? The answer to pregnancy depends on that. The burning is probably just from the trauma of insertion but if you're worried called the docs office.
If it was inserted between Day 1 and Day 5 then you should not be pregnant. You should call your Drs office about the burning sensation though just to be sure that everything is ok with the device. Some women do continue to have pain at the site but you want to make sure that it was inserted properly and there are no problems with the device.
