two days after having my implanon inserted in my arm i had unprotected sex and was scared that the implanon wouldnt be effective yet so i took the morning after pill. a month later in (january) i took a pregnancy test and it was fine. but now (febuary) i feel like my tummy has got bigger, i still have my implanon and am still having sex but im really scared, i think im just being stupid about my tummy but i need some reassurance? im scared the morning after pill may have affected the effectiveness of the implanon.

You waited long enough to take the pregnancy test, so you should be able to trust that the result was accurate. But if you remain worried, you can always take another test.

The EC does not have any effect on the Implanon, so there's no reason to worry about that.
