I had my implant inserted about two weeks after my last cycle (actually, I can be very specific, it was day 25 in my cycle. I usually go about 30-32 days) so my doctorate told me to wait another 14 before having unprotected sex. I am fine with that, the only thing I'm wondering is this: I am on day 33 and have not started my period yet. I am getting married in 9 days and husband is not going to want to use protection on our honeymoon... if I don't have my period by then, should I be concerned? I know I have ovulated because I was not on birth control previously so I feel as though technically I may be able to get pregnant if I haven't shed my lining yet... maybe I'm crazy, thoughts?
Maybe you don't know how your cycle works. Whether or not you have a period, its not going to make you ovulate. Periods often stop when you have the implant. You do not ovulate with the implant. You have less than a 1% risk of pregnancy with implant. You don't need any other protection.
