I am 18 and female. I had my implant fitted in 2015

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am 18 and female. I had my implant fitted in 2015 November. Over a week ago I noticed it was bent right in the middle. I went to a sexual health clinic & the lady said she thinks its okay. Done a P test & was negative. But no I have bad nausea at night, cramp in my belly a feeling on my tummy aching. Please help. Is there a chance I could be pregant!

Ok. You could be pregannt but you wouldn't be showing many signs

It is too early for a pregnancy test

I would get tested in another 1-2 weeks

but yes you could be

alternatives would be endometriosis or hormonal issues
