Breathe woman.

Do a pregnancy test. From what I could gather you won't do the test because you have a driving lesson in a couple of days? That's just silly.

I highly doubt you're pregnant anyways. I think you've just worked yourself up into a right tizz.

It is very rare to become PG when you have an implant (less than 0.05%).

How long ago since the condom split?

If you are worried, get an appointment to speak to your doctor.

No-one on mumsnet will be able to tell you for certain whether or not you are pregnant, or which symptoms are down to your current treatments.

Only a medical doctor (who will have your full history and an understanding of the active hormones in your implant, and the full ingredients of your eye medication) will be able to advise you.

Also, your post was difficult to read - it'd be much easier with paragraphs and punctuation, and you'd get a lot more replies.

Ok thanks i am sorry about my writing i find it hard to type (is dislextic so hopeless at typing lol ) smile and also i didn't meant u to think that i wont do the test because of my driving lessons its because i read on some chats that when u do do a test it come negative so i wasn't so sure to do it if i just gonna get that result i didn't even relies i get a reply. It split on Sunday just gone but thank you for your replies smile i am silly but i do tend to worry myself x.x

As it split only 4 days ago, it is too early to test, and too early to be displaying any pg symptoms.

If you are menstruating relatively regularly, wait and see if your period turns up. If not, you need to test at about 14 and 19 days since the condom split.

It might be worth going to see your GP anyhow for a medication review and to discuss see if the increase in urination needs investigation.

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.

I hope that helps a bit.
