Yes: Any child that is exhibiting symptoms of a heart defect should be seen. In infants this may be difficulty breathing or sweating when eating, episodes of turning blue or your pediatrician might hear an abnormal heart murmur. It is often better to see a pediatric cardiologist if one is available even before have an echo cardiogram performed.

Visit a local doctor: Seems to be no set gestational age limits for abortions. An internet search shows an abortion is legal if done before the fetus is viable (usually before 24 wks); or at anytime when abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman, or if the fetus has a serious genetic defect or abnormality. One should visit a local doctor for details because some states may have different rules.

Expected: Implanon/nexplanon is known to cause irregular bleeding. Expect this for the first few months and expect it to decrease over time & eventually you should have lighter and more regular cycles. Take care.
