Okay, I had Implanon inserted on 10-26-12 . I have had unprotected sex before getting it and since having it put in. My period should have started 11-25-12 but instead, I've just had veryyyy light spotting that's a brown color. (sorry if TMI, I'm worried&want answers!lol) that didn't start until a day after my cycle should have started. I've had a feeling of constant heartburn which has never been an issue for me, along with random waves of nausea especially when I first wake up, but so far,no actual puking. Headaches, back pain. If I stay up past 10 I feel like I'm simply gonna pass out im so tired. im moody as hell& quite frankly, something just feels different. Could I be pregnant??

@Green Witch,
I have the papers with all this on it lol. My doctor told me that if I had any type of side effect it would be heavy bleeding during the first three months..because iwas worried about that ling list and asked. Doc also told me that it takes about 10 days to level out and start doing its job& I stupidly had unprotected sex regardless that it hadn't been 10 days. Im just so freaking scared, thanks so much though !

Always know the side effects when you first start a drug. Everyone has different chemistry and side effects can indicate there is a serious problem. I highly doubt you are pregnant, but I do think this method of birth control is messing with your chemistry. You might want to try another form of birth control to see if you react better to it.

Ask for the doctor's help so that you could have a more accurate diagnosis. It could be several things so it is best to go to your physician to be more sure.
