Should I call my doctor or is it just in my head?

I got implanon April 19 (I was in the middle of my cycle) My husband and I did have unprotected sex a couple of time before I had it inserted. I haven't started my period (it was due yesterday), so i'm one day late. I feel like i've been going to the bathroom a little more than what I usually do, I have terrible headaches every day, and somedays I just feel like crap. I took a hpt yesterday and it was negative. Should I call my doctor or is it normal to not get a period while on Implanon?

  • If you are just off by a day or even a couple I would not worry. When you start taking birth control it can really mess up your system and take a while for it to regulate. Personally I would not call the doctor and give it a little while. I tend to think that peeing more often is unrelated and lean more towards it being more in your head.

  • Maybe you have a UTI. Never hurts to get checked out. The headache and feeling like crap could signal an infection and the only way to find out if that is the case is to go to the doctor.
