No: Nexplanon (etonogestrel implant) is highly effective at preventing pregnancy. It lasts for 4 years.

You can rarely be: Since Nexplanon is a vey highly effective method of contraception, your risk of getting pregnant is quite low even if you are obese (0.05% or less than 1 pregnancy per 100 women in 1yr); but it is not zero. A blood betaHCG pregnancy test should answer your question. If your pregnancy test is indeed positive, it is recommended to remove the implant. If negative, keep it safely and securely
