Yes: You can get pregnant with any form of contraception, unfortunately. Nothing is 100% other than abstinence. The chances of pregnancy with the implant is 1% (or 1 out of 100 women) over the course of a year. So one instance of unprotected sex is much less than that. Even sterilization isn't 100%. Hope that helps!

Stange combination: It is not typical to be taking progesterone pills at the same time one is using a Progesterone contraceptive implant. Taking the oral Progesterone is not likely to be effective at whatever its purpose was given the circulating Progesterone. Pregnancy is highly unlikely with an Implant but you could always check a home test for reassurance.

Not pregnant: Taking medroxyprogesterone while on the implant does not make the implant less effective.
