Sexually active. Planning for contraceptive implant. Is it safe to go for contraceptive implant?

Im 16 and I am sexually active- last had sex about 2 months ago , My last period was march/ april time. I went to the gp today and got booked in for the contraceptive implant. However My very strict mum was in the room and when the doctor asked if i was sexually active I said no when in fact I am, I didnt want my mum to know, the gp then went on to say how it was good that i went before i had sex as its a diffferent procedure. Im now worried! Will it not work now?

if you had regular periods after having intercourse,
and if you are not pregnant then your contraceptive implant will work,
but remember it can only protect from pregnancy,
and not give protection from sexually transmitted disease,
so you have to take additional protection for them.
and sometimes there is around 1% failure rate for it, so you miss periods for two continuous months check for pregnancy.
take care.
