It split on Sunday just gone but thank you for your replies i am silly but i do tend to worry myself x.x
The implant is one of the most reliable forms of contraception, you don't to combine it with condoms to protect against pregnancy, you are only advised to use condoms when on it to protect against STI's.
The implant can also mess with your periods, it stopped mine completely - but that's just a side affect, it's not because of pregnancy.
I don't think you have much to worry about so try not to stress. If doing a pregnancy test will reassure you it's best to wait 2 weeks after the incident.
I've had the implant twice, never used condoms with it & never got pregnant when on it.
