Very low chance.: Nexplanon has a 0.5% failure rate, so the most accurate answer is, Yes, you COULD be pregnant but it's extremely unlikely. 0.5% means that for every 200 intercourse events without a condom, there will be 1 pregnancy. Additional use of a condom improves your chance to be pregnancy-free, AND it protect you and your partner from STDs, (which the implant does not). ...Read more

Hello I just done a bleach pregnancy test I'm on nexplanon and it's came up all fizzy and frothy? Is that positive
The only positive...: The only positive conclusion from any sort of bleach pregnancy test is that you have to go to the store and buy a real urine pregnancy test. They are inexpensive, very accurate at 3 weeks after sex, and sold everywhere. Also, when using bleach, be sure not to wear colored, nice clothes because any accidental splashes will just leave bleach spots on the clothes. ...Read more

I'm having early symptoms of pregnancy but I'm also on nexplanon which has similar side effects also I have irregular cycles when should I take a test?
3 weeks after sex: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant while having the Nexplanon implant? I've had it in for 2 years & 8 months & I'm having a few pregnancy symptoms
So ive had nexplanon for 2 years now and I also use condoms while having sex. What's the chance of pregnancy?
Very small: The Nexplanon is an extremely reliable method of contraception but nothing is 100%. The failure rate (risk of pregnancy) rises some with obesity but remains less than 0.05%. The condoms are a very good idea in order to decrease the risk of STDs but aren't necessary for contraception. You are to be commended for using both as is recommended. It is very responsible of you. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Can you get a period and have pregnancy symptoms? I'm on nexplanon and I feel pregnant I feel very hungry and sleepy
Side Effect: Nexplanon is a Progesterone only birth control method. Progesterone levels are normally elevated just prior to your menstrual period and also in pregnancy. So using a progesterone only method can make you feel pregnant, hungry and sleepy. If this is new for you, you might do a home pregnancy test to be sure. But most likely it is a side-effect of Nexplanon. Best wishes! ...Read more

Spotted for a week 5 days after having sex. Had intercourse 6 days after getting nexplanon replaced before expired. Chances of pregnancy from precum?
Here are some...: Post-coital spotting warrants a need for evaluation for its cause; so, go to see your gyn-doc. With timely replacing contraceptive implant and under precum (and I assume no insemination.), the odd to conceive under such scenario should be next to zero. Nonetheless and in knowing no contraceptive brings 100%, do HPT in a wk after missing period & repeat it in another wk if the first is (-) & still ...Read more
