Q: N January I had the birth control Nexplanon implanted in my arm. In April I found out I was 15 weeks pregnant. The doctors told me I must have gotten pregnant before the implant, even though they tested me before I was implanted and it was negative. I had an abortion and the center that did it told me the Nexplanon was still good for another 3 years. I had sex a week after my abortion with my boyfriend, unprotected. He did not ejaculate inside of me but I am nervous anyway because im still feeling some strange cramping in my abdomen(it has been 2 weeks since the abortion) and still feeling some heart palpitations. What are the possibilities that I could be pregnant even though I am on birth control? Does the abortion have anything to do with these possibilities.? Help please.
