I've been on implanon birth control since the end of June. I haven't had a peroid since I have had my daughter in May. I just started having sex with my boyfriend and its been about a month now. I'm very worried because we have been having unprotected sex. And I'm starting to feel like I did when I got pregnant with my daughter. Should I be worried or should I just let it go.
You have implanon. It is birth control. Birth control prevents births. Stop worrying. There is less than a 1% chance you are pregnant. Hormonal birth control frequently has side effects that mimic pregnancy. Many don't have their period the whole time they have implanon. It causes you to build up less uterine lining as part of the way it works, therefore there isn't much to bleed. Relax, enjoy yourself. You are about as safe as you can get.
I think that you are just under stress because you are worrying about being pregnant again! Are you nursing your baby? The reason that I ask is because of you are then you may not get your period, nursing mothers usually don't get a period if their babies are on Breast milk only, I nursed all 3 of my kids and didn't get a period for a year and a half with each kid. Also you are on a birth control that contains hormones and they can have side effects that are just like pregnancy! If you really want to ease your mind I would get a home pregnancy test and take it and see what it says or go to your GYN and have them test you for pregnancy. It will help ease your mind and once you stop worrying your period may start. But do know that with some forms of birth control you may not get your period. I hope everything works out for you!
