3 weeks and 2 days ago i had the next pleaon removed in from my arm by my doctor, 2 days later i had sex, it was unprotected as we both completely forgot, we dont mind if i get pregnant, we want more children together, but i was wondering how long does it take to get your period after its removed? also would their be a chance ild be pregnant from that one thing? would it show up in a home test yet? i got pregnant right after the removal of the implanon years an years ago (4) and i ended up misscaraging, and it was horrible, i got very sick from it. i dont want that to happen again. atm iv only had slightly sore breasts, and been more tired, but that could be beacuse i have 2 children already, so please, any advice would help me mentally. im going crazy

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

After removal of Implanon it takes few months to a year for a woman to conceive and as the hormonal levels are normalized and ovulation takes place pregnancy chances are present.Though woman can conceive even immediately but possibility is less.
Regarding the periods it cannot be commented as it varies in every individual and could be irregular for sometime.Any test as urine/blood would not show up right now as it is too early.Relax and wait for the periods to start.

Your symptoms as sore breasts and fatigue might be due to sudden fluctuation in the hormones due to removal.If you notice any unusual symptom as absent periods,prolonged periods,pain abdomen etc then consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take care!
