Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Some women do not get periods while on implanon. Pregnancy is not possible while on this unless this was inserted without doing a pregnancy test. If this was inserted just after the periods then you cannot be pregnant. However if in doubt take a pregnancy test and see. Hope this helps. Take care!
