    bascially me and my boyfriend were doing stuff one night, (if you know what I mean) he was doing that close to my vagina I'm on the implant so it's normally okay, however this was the night before it was due to stop working (it was no later than 11:15pm, definitely not midnight) and I was getting it renewed the week after. so my question is, could the implant have stopped working (as it was its 'deadline') and could I be pregant? Is there a specific time it runs out like 3years EXACTLY from the time you got it put in? Please help me.

    No, there isn't!

    If your GP / clinic are happy with your appointment date for having a new one next week, you're protected.

    so it ran out the day after it happened (basically an hour or so before the next day) so it would have still been working?

    Yes, there's a safety margin built in to the 'three years'. Otherwise you'd been asked to have it changed before then and warned to use some other contraception.

    Put another way, there's no clock ticking away inside an implant...
