Recent Implanon questions

I have an irrational fear of getting pregnant. I am currently

I have an irrational fear of getting pregnant. I am currently using the Implanon implant (Which is apparently the most reliable birth control with 99. something success) but because I'm so afraid I feel like I should have a second or even third birth control, be it oral contraceptive or condoms, or even both for that matter. Should I even be worrying this much about it? Would it make a difference if I used more than one different type of contraceptive?

, I am a 38 old female and 4 weeks ago I got my implanon

Hi, I am a 38 old female and 4 weeks ago I got my implanon removed from my arm since I had the 3 years with it and replaced with nexplanon that same day. but I been feeling for over a week some Mild muscle pain in both of my arms, hands, legs and feet..Every time I try to lift something It feels like a muscle contraction on my hands and my elbows. today I went to my doctor and she told me the nexplanon looked okay and she told me I might need to take some multi-vitamins. My question is can nexplanon hormonescause these symptoms? I have also not been sleeping very well.. I am just thinking to much why am I feeling all this so maybe my stress makes it worst. Please help! What can I do to reduce my symptoms?

I have a friend who is 19 and on implanon. Her implanon

I have a friend who is 19 and on implanon. Her implanon expires next month April and she believes she's pregnant. She had unprotected sex March 12th, 2015 and started having pregnancy symptoms on March 14, 2015. Her last period was February 15th, 2015 and her expected next period would have been March 15th, which she missed. Based on her 28 cycle period and Ovulation is it possible that she may have conceived prior to her sexual unprotected sex March 12th, 2015? Is it possible for the individual who she slept with March 12th, 2015 to be the father?

3.5 years ago I had the Implanon birth control inserted into

3.5 years ago I had the Implanon birth control inserted into my left arm. The NP who did it hit my ulnar nerve in the process. I had numbness and tingling in my arm down to my fingers for weeks, and after about 2 months it subsided. I still occasionally have some tingling in my fingers. However, for the past year about every day I will get a dull and sometimes sharp throbbing pain around the area where it was inserted.I also developed general anxiety disorder and panic disorder about a year ago. Could it be related to that or is it possible the nerve damage is still there?The pain in my arm sometimes sets off panic attacks because I supposed my mind freaks out thinking it's a blood clot or something along those lines. Any diagnostic tests I should have? Thank you!
