colostrum with implant in, a sign of pregnancy?

i have a 6 almost 7month old son and i just bathed and had colostrum come out of my breasts. i have been completely dried up since he was 4wks old (naturally not by choice) and not a single drop since. i KNOW it wasnt milk. i even thought soap at first til i squeezed and it came out. i have the hormone implant in my arm. so im hoping im NOT pregnant. what are the chances? i have a few other symptoms but really dont want to. :/ im going to talk to my husband this evening and get a test tomorrow but do i need to be worried? and what could happen if i am since i have the implant?

Welcome to ehealthforum

It might be possible that you are experiencing the breast discharge due to implant insertion as it can be a side effect.Some other effects are nausea,headache,cramps,fatigue,irregular bleeding etc.But these are usually present for initial few months after insertion.
Regarding the failure chances it is present but rare.You can visit a Physician for evaluation.

Take Care!
