Pregnant while using implant?! Watch

    Just a warning really, that it can happen.
    Granted, no contraception is 100% guaranteed, but I never imagined I'd be one of the roughly 1 in 2000 women that get pregnant while using the implant. We weren't using a condom because we'd run out of latex free ones (recently discovered that I'm allergic), and 'you only need a condom alongside other contraception when one of you has an STD'. Turns out that's all bullsh*t! haha..
    I have to have an abortion because I have a future to think of and don't consider it a 'baby' yet (I'm a month in), but other people with different morals/religion may find themselves in a pretty tricky situation.
    Moral of the story - IT CAN HAPPEN. Wear a sodding condom.

    Lol we know that. We know that contraception isn't 100% effective and you should've as well. Sorry to hear of your situation.

    To be fair, when you're faced with statistics like 'less than one women in 1000 get pregnant with the implant', you're normally pretty safe to assume that it won't happen

    You have been staggeringly unlucky by getting pregnant despite having the implant - it's more reliable than a sterilisation op, but still not 100%...

    Hope everything goes well with your choices.

    I tried the implant but got it removed due to side effects but then I fell pregnant on microgynon and had an abortion too. You always think it'll never happen to you and contraceptive failures are only ever something you read about or only happen when you forget to take the pill but it happened to me and I took the pill religiously. I felt cheated. I've been on Cerazette for the last five years and touch wood, had no failures on it.
