implants and pregnancy tests

Hey! Quick question about pregancy tests, I currently on Levlen (the pill) and use condoms too, I also skip the white pills and usually only have a period once every 3 months - curious as to if skipping pills can effect the results of a pregnancy test? Rationally I know the chances of being pregnant are loooowww, but I'm horribly paranoid about being pregnant haha. Last few days my stomach has felt a bit "off" and paranoia is kicking in. I haven't caved and bought a test yet, I swear I get like this all the time :C

On birth control, was reading this web comic and it honestly makes the implant sound quite good. I've been using pills since I've been sexually active because I love the ability to skip pills and not have a period, along with stopping skipping every few months to make sure I'm not pregnant, along with knowing exactly when I'm going to be bleeding and avoiding it happening at inconvenient times (skipping is amazing during overseas holidays, or going anywhere really, periods suck) which is why I like being on the pill - but the lower chance of pregnancy with the implant is appealing, inconsistent and not when I want periods not so much.

Plus, how can you keep track of if your pregnant or not? I know for some people their periods stop completely, but while that's amazing, holy crap id be so scared of getting pregnant and not knowing. I'd love to get sterilized, but I know its not going to happen. Id love to hear some input from people that have had it/use it still etc.
