Unprotected sex prior to commence period is almost safe period and there is no chance of pregnancy at all.
Implanon is sub dermal contraceptive method,used for 3 yrs and effective more than 99%.
It has some side effects & it varies from woman to woman like irregular period, headache,Wt change,DVT,abdominal discomfort,nausea,fatigue, mood swing etc.
Do a USG lower abdomen & some hormone test to rule out underlying pathology if any.
Avoid stress,take healthy diet,control body wt by regular exercise,wear tight breast support and need proper sleep.
If you need further consultation with me,then you can visit
Take care.

Thanks for your query
After Implanon, which is a hormonal contraceptive, in the early days of use, you could be having the side effects like nausea, breast tenderness etc.
Moreover, pregnancy due to intercourse just prior to having your period is least likely.
Right now you are already on the implanon, so next month in case you DO miss your period ( which is less likely ) and even if you dont, do go for your followup check up to rule out pregnancy.
Meanwhile, if the symptoms are troublesome, contact your health care provider.
Take care

the ovulation occurs only at the 14th day of menstrual cycle
if you still want to confirm your diagnosis,do a HCG card test
Practice safe sex by using safe period/Em pill /Condom etc to avoid unwanted pregnancy.
