A member asked:

How soon after implanting nexplanon is it safe to have sex without any other protection, if inserted about 2-3 weeks after my last period?

7 days: Nexplanon is effective almost immediately. I usually advise my patients to use backup for about 7 days just to be safe. Since your insertion was 3 weeks ago you are protected.
