I think it’s highly unlikely that you could be pregnant, from your dates, am I right in saying you were on your period when you had sex? If so, I really don’t think you could be pregnant.

Also, I was bad too, and didn’t wait the full time after it was first inserted and I was fine. Try not to stress.

The problem with cycles is that the BC that interupts them mess up all your timing… 

I would take the test, and take another one in a month just to be sure. 

There is a chance you could get pregnant, but it’s unlikely– those meds take a bit to get out of your system, so if you were fully covered on the 21st, you were probably 90% covered on the 22nd, and 80% covered on the 23rd, etc. Concersely, they take a bit to take effect to, so on day 1, the implanon was probably only 10% effective– day 2, it would be 20% effective, etc. 

Obviously, those numbers are just examples– but you get the idea.  The chances of you being pregnant are slim to none– but doing a few tests wont hurt anything.

@crazy worrier:  I had implanon for nearly three years, had it removed in January because I developed painful ovarian cysts.

When I had mine inserted, they said that I was covered almost immediately. We started having sex without condoms the next day, and didnt use them again for the next three years, and I never got pregnant with the implanon.

It did, however, screw up my periods, and the periods you get on it are not “periods”…since you do not ovulate. There is breakthrough bleeding in the beginning, and for the next few months you might have that.

Based on the dates, I really think you have a slim to none chance of being pregnant…unless you were pregnant BEFORE they inserted the device. I would still test just to make sure. The period part of having implanon is the most annoying, once you get used to random spotting every few weeks or months, it really is a great birth control.

This is all just based on my opinion/experience, so if you are seriously worried call your doctor/take the test.
