I had the implanon (nexplanon) inserted on the 3rd day of my monthly cycle, my doctor told me to wait about 2 weeks before having unprotected sex. I had unprotected sex 12/13 days after having it inserted (day 15 of my cycle) should i be worried about pregnancy? I've read in most places it starts to work straight away if inserted between days 1-5? Im beginning to get myself worked up about it now, my period is due in 10 days but im not sure if my cycle is going to change because of the implanon.
If it is inserted between Da1 and Day 5 there is really no need to use back up. Some docs will tell you to use back up just to be "extra safe" (to avoid being sued for one thing). No worries, you were protected. Your cycle could very well change with Implanon. Many women have irregular cycles and can top bleeding altogether for months at a time.
