Hi guys! I'm new to the forum thingey but I need your advice
I had the implant removed on 05.03.14 and I've had unprotected sex after it was removed. It's now been 9 days since the implant was taken out and I've had no period at all. Is this normal?
Thanks in advance!

Yes - very normal.
I had the non-hormonal IUD and when it was removed my period was 14 days late.
If you have the hormonal IUD, it's even more common as the hormonal balance is adjusting in your body.

Are you trying to get pregnant?

Yes, my partner and I are trying at the moment.

Congrats and good luck

If you don't get your period within two weeks of having unprotected sex, than take a home pregnancy test.
