I am a married woman aged 42. I thought I had protection from Implanon but last week had a check up with my GP who informed me that the Implanon needed to be removed as it was past its expiry date. She did a pregnancy test and it showed nothing. However, I had unprotected sex during the week prior to my GP visit which has worried me as I don't need another baby at this stage of my life. I tried the Parsley pessary and sure enough I had some spotting which then developed into 3.5 days of bleeding. Does this mean I've had my period and that I'm not pregnant or is there still a possibility of pregnancy. Needless to say there will be no more unprotected sex and I now have a prescription for the Mirena Coil.
