Hello everyone,

As you know with my last post, I had a condom breakage I think four weeks ago today. I'm on Nexplanon and had been for about four weeks ago when this happened. There's more info on my last thread if you need it.

I've talked to my mum, my best friend, and my aunt about this and they say I most definitely will be fine and it's so unlikely the implant would fail. However the night before my condom breakage I took one pennicillin tab for a throat infection; i didn't take any more however as it made me feel nausea, and I figured I could battle it on my own.

However I have read online that antibiotics can affect the pill, so can they do the same to nexplanon?? Would that one tablet have made a difference? I'm really, really worried about the posibilities of being pregnant.

Last week, I had a bit of staining or spotting of brown then very light pink blood. It lasted about a day. At first i thought this was just a very light period caused my the implant but then I wondered could it be implantation bleeding?

Just very worried at the minute. I hope someone can help.

At this point, since it's been more than enough time to get an accurate result, if you remain concerned about being pregnant, the only sound thing to do is to take a pregnancy test.

As I've already discussed with you, I'm with everyone else you have talked to about this. Like I told you in your last thread, you were using one of the most effective, foolproof methods there is, and like I already told you there, a pregnancy is not at all a likely possibility. As well, spotting is the most common side effect with the implant, so that you're having spotting is something about a thousand times more likely to be about your implant than anything else.

So, since you're clearly still very concerned, and facts and everyone you ask saying the same thing doesn't seem to be alleviating that, the only thing I can possibly suggest that might is seeing that negative result on a pregnancy test. And I think taking that would be a lot more productive for you than asking for more words from anyone when those clearly aren't having an impact, even when they're unanimous.
