Hi, I'm a 19 year old female.
I had the implanon inserted almost 2 years ago. The first year was great, I felt normal and didn't have my period at all. Then as this second year as gone on I have been having all sorts of issues and are hopefully getting the implant removed this week. I have started getting irregular periods, I have been feeling really down and depressed of late and have been uncontrollably crying at any given moment. In addition, I worry that I may be pregnant. My partner and I use condoms as well as the implanon as a means of contraception, but on a rare few occasions over the last couple of months we have not used condoms. Maybe 3-4 times. In all of these instances he pulled out and ejaculated on me, rather than in me, or pulled out and then put a condom on. I am worried that some sperm may have gotten inside when he ejaculated on me or perhaps his pre-ejaculation could make me pregnant. I feel sick all the time, I feel tired all the time, I don't really feel like eating, I have indigestion or heart burn, I have been pooing a fair bit but that's usual for me. I can't remember when I had my last period, maybe a month and a half ago. I'm too scared to take a test or anything because I don't want to believe it if I am as I have never really wanted kids.
I hear all these stories about pregnancy testers not being accurate and lots of people still getting pregnant while on the implanon.
I also suffer extreme anxiety, and this is really messing with my head.
Is it the implanon making me feel like this or am I pregnant?

Hi, I'm a 19 year old female.
I would find out if I was actually pregnant first, if not have the implant taken out. I have had lots of luck with the Depo shot. I love that I have no period. I could never remember to take a pill, and stayed sick or on my period with those. A lot of people have told me they gained weight on Depo, but I never have, and its been six years, But if you are pregnant you need to know as soon as possible, that way if you should decide to abort, you can decide before its to late. If your not ready, the child will suffer. Your plans for the future will also change. Your young and have plenty of time to have children. Remember this is YOUR decision. I wish you luck.
