I have missed a period, and I have a clear vaginal

Resolved Question:

I have missed a period, and I have a clear vaginal discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend on the 5th of September, but we used protection. He had a condom which we checked and there was no sign of damage, and I have the implant. Can you give me advice on why I have missed a period?

I do not do phone calls

1/4 women who have implanon have no periods. This is a common and expected side effect. It does not mean anything is wrong.

Most women have irregular bleeding You cannot expect a regular period on this method of birth control
