Exam: Certainly get an xray of your lower back and an examination. You may have an irritated sciatic nerve: OK to use OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen) if you are pregnant. Passive stretching exercises and good posture will help.

Low back pain: You are very young to be having these issues. Have you had any injuries? If not, you need an x-ray and labs to make sure you don't have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Good luck with this and hope you feel better soon.

Back pain: I'm confused, you state that you are on Nexplanton birth control implant but then report pregnancy under conditions. If you are pregnant, then your symptoms are likely due to pregnancy. Otherwise, you may have back muscle strain. If you are pregnant, talk to your doctor about safety of medications you are currently taking.
