Pregnancy tests test for a hormone, hCg, the body only produces when pregnant.

Implanon is a method of contraception which works by using a synthetic progesterone, a totally different hormone. Hormonal methods of contraception, and people using them, have no impact at all on the efficacy of pregnancy tests: they work just the same for you as they do for people who aren't using a hormonal method.
