before I had the nexplanon implanted they said not to have sex for 2weeks living with my boyfriend that didn't happen. still had sex till the day it was the day for my implantation. pregnancy test there came out negative had a shirt period they told me to wait 5 days until I had sex again and I didn't wait... /: I had the nexplanon implanted 12/06/2013 and it's now 1/28/2014 I been feeling so different... abdominal pain headaches and nausea I've read that it's normal but I'm kinda freaking out I been extremely tired I could sleep like never before! I'm talking 12 or 13 hours as still be tired. food cravings and all. i had a miscarriage before the insertion about 3 months before so I know what it feels like to be pregnant. I pee like crazy and my lower abdomen is really hard. I've read on depending on your weight it won't be as affective. I'm a pretty heavy girl 245 at the time of insertion is there a possibility that I'm pregnant ? I'm freaking myself out and I'm scared to buy a pregnancy test ... !!!
Now is not the time you should worry about pregnancy, that comes before you have unprotected sex. Its time for you to start respecting yourself and demanding that you aren't used like that. If he wanted to have unprotected sex, you should have said no. If he doesn't respect you enough to listen to you, you need to find someone who does. Its your body, you determine how its treated. Whether or not the implant works for you, it would not have been working until you'd had it for 5 days.
There is reason for everything they tell you to do. Even doing a pregnancy test, you could still have been pregnant since they told you NOT to have unprotected sex 2 weeks before hand. The reason is a pregnancy test will not pick up on that early of a pregnancy. You could have been pregnant even though the test came up negative. You did nothing a you were supposed to and NOW you are worried? Come on! It sounds to me like you are really just hoping you will get pregnant. Yes, you could very well be pregnant or it is possible that it is side effects of the Nexplanon. The only thing you can do is to test. I'd wait until about Feb 12 or so then test.
