A 20-year-old female asked:
How effective is the implanon without using condoms? can you still get pregnant?

Very effective: Implanon is a very effective method of contraception on its own but no method is 100%. Implanon does come close. You need the condoms to decrease the risk of sexually transmitted diseases because the implanon does nothing to help with this. Hope this helps.
