I got the nexplanon implant a little over 7 months ago, but my period hasn't gone away since. They told me to go back if that happened. I called to make an appointment but it wont be until January 3rd. I have been having sex after the 6 month mark. Now I'm having light headaches and nauseous. Could I be pregnant? Or is it even possible?
You won't be pregnant if you've followed the instructions on getting your implant.
It's common to bleed in the first year of the implant. I bled for most of a year, lightly & sometimes moderately, & had it taken out after a year, as it didn't settle down during that time. That's as long as I was prepared to give it.
You are still protected by against pregnancy, despite bleeding.
