Pregnant on the Implant?

Hello,

I had a termination in October 2013 - and has the implant fitted straight after that.

I had unprotected sex on the 7th October; normally when I have unprotected with my boyfriend I don't 'feel' like I'm pregnant; however this time; I am starting to get the symptoms; I've not had another period; I've had a lot of discharge; I have a bloated stomach ; soar breasts ; tired ; back ache ; but no sickness?

Could I be pregnant on the implant? Or am I just worrying?

Many Thanks Abi

  • Hi there

    Do you mean your implant has been in for 2 years? If it has it lasts for 3 years and as long as you can still feel it in your arm, then it is very unlikely that you are pregnant. But if you are worried then it might be an idea to take a pregnancy test just to put your mind at ease.

    I hope this helps

  • Hi Katherine.

    Yes it has been in for 2 years- it's due for change next October.

    Do you think its just side effects?

    Thank you for that xx

  • Hi there

    A lot of women do find that their periods stop after a year or two with the implant, so no periods is normal. It may just be hormonal side effects that you are experiencing. As before, as long as you can still feel it in your arm you won't be pregnant.

    I hope this helps

    Best wishes
