I'm getting it today but my doctor said I had to be on my period but I haven't started yet, but I will in a couple if days, could I still get the implant if I'm not on my period?
If you haven't had any hormonal contraceptives recently, it should be implanted as your doctor said, between days 1 - 5 of your period, even if you are bleeding. Other people can have it implanted at different times of their cycle depending on whether or not they've been taking other forms of hormonal birth control, whether or not someone just had a miscarriage, or a baby.
