I got my implant done a month ago, and because it was a day after I came off my period, the doctor said it will work straight away. Me and my partner waited 2 weeks before having sex and still used a condom, Yet I still think I'm pregnant, I haven't had a period yet and I'm only 16 so I'm pretty worried, what should i do? Do you think I'm pregnant?
There is always a possibility of pregnancy, however its not probable. You don't always get your period on implanon. You did everything correctly, so its very unlikely that you are pregnant. The implanon can cause some signs that are like pregnancy too. Remember that if you ever go on antibiotics you need to use a condom while on it and a week afterwards because it lessens the effect of the implanon.
Are we speaking of Implanon implants? If it was done between day 1 to day 5 of your period, you should not be pregnant. If it was put in more than 5 days after the start day of your period, you should have been advised to use back up, like condoms for seven days. Since you waited two weeks to have sex and you also used a condom, you are fine!! After starting IMPLANON, women are likely to have a change from their normal menstrual bleeding pattern. These may include changes in bleeding frequency (absent, less, more frequent or continuous), intensity (reduced or increased) or duration. So no worries, you are not likely to be pregnant. If you are really, really unsure, once your period is more than a week late, you can do a pregnancy test. It will most likely be negative as I cant see of any way that you got pregnant with the information you have provided here. This should set your mind at ease.
