Possible: You should take a pregnancy test. I can't tell from your question if you had the unprotected sex before or after the implanon, or how long after it was placed you had sex. Generally, you are protected from pregnancy starting 1 week after placement of implanon. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: Most likely, that means there's a cute baby growing inside. Pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex. As always, get prenatal visits started early. Be sure to be married, settled down, with stable jobs (at least one parent), and at least one job that offers medical insurance (babies have lots of doctor visits). Stay healthy. No smoking. No alcohol. Only nutritious foods. ...Read more

I've had the nexplanon on since February last period was on April. Been having unprotected sex. Recently just had a brown/pinkish discharge?

Some thoughts...: One's primary care doctor can check out a new or unusual vaginal discharge that started after sex. The doctor can check for a urine infection, if there are any urinary symptoms. Sometimes vaginal discharges are related to overgrowth of non-dangerous bacteria, but other times they are related to sexually-transmitted infectious microbes that need treatment. A pregnancy test can be done, if needed. ...Read more

Unlikely: Nexplanon is one of the most effective pregnancy prevention methods there is. Its highly unlikely that you are pregnant. Nexplanon will keep you from having regular periods and that is probably why you didn't have a period.

Maybe (not). . .: Anytime you have unprotected sex, you can get pregnant. However, it's unlikely for someone to get pregnant just one week after Nexplanon implant is removed because it takes a little while for your body to start ovulating again. Still, if you're concerned, home pregnancy tests are inexpensive & available at pharmacies w/o prescription. If you don't want to get pregnant, make sure he wears a condom. ...Read more
