I just got Implanon birth control a few days ago.

Patient : I am 16 years old and I just got Implanon birth control a few days ago. I did not have it put in during my period, so the doctor said to still use a condom for about 2 weeks to mKe sure it would be effective. However, I was given. Steroid shot and antibiotics the day after I received Implanon. I will have to take them for 5 days. Inwas just wondering if I will still be safe after two weeks?
