On July 16, 2010 I got the Implanon birth control injected into my arm, which lasts for three years. For the fist time since then, I had sex on March 30, 2012, exactly 2 weeks and a day from today. So I have this birth control injection and he also used a condom. He didn't cum at all and the condom had no hole in it after we finished. I have an irregular period due to the bc so that doesn't help me. I also haven't felt sick or anything but I did have a huge headache 2 days ago. Could I be pregnant?

Implanon is one of the most effective methods of birth control out there: over 99% effective. Combining that with condoms means you're as close to a zero risk of pregnancy as it's possible to be, really.
Have you thought about whether right now is a good time for you to be having the kinds of sex that can potentially cause pregnancy? I'm hearing a quite lot of anxiety about an almost non-existent risk, and often that kind of anxiety is an indication that having sex isn't the best choice to make at that point.
(By the way, please don't double post. I understand you're concerned, but we get to questions as quickly as we can and double posting won't get an answer any faster. Thanks!)
