... bit bigger and she feels pain but she told me she also bleeds, but she says she's pregnant but she also tells me not no worry that the implanon will posin the fetus? Is that true? I'm worried
Implanon is a form of birth control to prevent pregnancy. It will not poison the baby as in causing death to the fetus. If she is truly pregnant, then she needs to be seen by the doctor right away to remove the implanon so to protect the growing fetus from birth defect potential. If she has an implanon then chances are she is not pregnant. She can still bleed with an implanon.

David, If your girlfriend has implanon already inserted previous to your having sex then she should have been protected from pregnancy. As in "unprotected" I am assuming you mean that you did not use a condom? Depending on when Implanon was inserted she should have been protected against pregnancy, at the very least, 7 days after insertion and the Implanon is good for up to three years then another must be placed. Very rarely pregnancy can happen. Implanon will NOT poison the fetus. If she has had a positive pregnancy test then she needs to see a Dr about either removal of the Implanon or discontinuing the pregnancy. A woman's stomach will not show a pregnancy in 3 weeks time. It takes 3-4 months before pregnancy shows. If she is bleeding and having periods, it is unlikely she is pregnant.
Has she had a positive pregnancy test? What makes her believe she is pregnant? Please read about Implanon so you understand how it works. You can look here on DDC or just google Implanon.
David, both of you need to go be tested for STDs. to make sure that you didn't get something. Sometimes people have oral sex, and think that's it's okay, but you can catch something from a person that's giving you oral sex-the germs are in the mouth and throat, and people get the disease in their mouths and throat. There are false pregnancies caused by either wanting a pregnancy or fearing a pregnancy. If this is the case, your girl friend isn't in control of the situation and don't blame her for anything. She should go to the doctor and make sure that she's safe and healthy. Sometimes a woman will just get pregnant while using birth control-nothing is ever a 100%. If she is one of the rare ones that can get pregnant while on birth control, the doctors or clinic people can help her. Also this is very dangerous to the baby's health, and it's no fun taking care of a special needs child.
David I don't mean to be bossy, but you should worry more about yourself. You could get some horrible diseases when you don't use a condom. What's worse is that you can give something horrible to somebody else. You sound like you care about her very much. I know this is hard to talk about. You are are probably thinking so much about her stomach that it seems huge. Also, she could be swelling from the problem that's causing her to swell and bleed. Just get checked-both of you.
Good luck- I'm friending you, so you can talk private if you want.
