A 20-year-old female asked:
If you are on the implanon birthcontrol and your period has discontinued can you still get pregnant?

Not likely: The period "disappeared" because the implanon has minimized the lining of the womb making period bleeding "null and void" while the hormones prevent ovulation and thus pregnancy.
