According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

So I ended my period on sunday and started my first pack on monday. When will I be protected against pregnancy? Details about nexplanon?

So I ended my period on sunday and started my first pack on monday. When will I be protected against pregnancy? Details about nexplanon?

Starting BC: Because cycle length can vary, best to wait a full pack to guarantee protection against an unplanned pregnancy. Nexplanon is not for everyone, but if you have used birth control pills well, it may be an option because it works very quickly and you don't need to take it every day so it's ideal it you tend to forget taking the pill. ...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

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

Hello I just done a bleach pregnancy test I'm on nexplanon and it's came up all fizzy and frothy? Is that positive

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

My boyfriend finished in me, I'm on nexplanon. Chances of pregnancy?

My boyfriend finished in me, I'm on nexplanon. Chances of pregnancy?

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

I recently switched from the pill to nexplanon. I had unprotected sex the day I got it. I'm having a ton of pregnancy symptoms. Could I be pregnant?

Unanswerable: We no longer use ambiguous symptoms that represent hormone fluctuations and not pregnancy to diagnose pregnancy. If you feel you need to test please wait for at least fourteen days. Any earlier the test will not be valid if it is negative. ...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?

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

Nexplanon: Nexplanon may cause a change in your periods and the regularity of them. Although usually I recommend a backup method for the first 6-8 weeks to be safe. Always practice safe sex with condoms as well. Consider a pregnancy test To check as well. ...Read more

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

Spotted for a week 5 days after having sex. Had intercourse 6 days after getting nexplanon replaced before expired. Chances of pregnancy from precum?

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

4 days for the medication to leave your system.
2 weeks to ovulate, then 2 weeks to period start. If not pregnant.
This timeline only applies if you were very regular with 28 day cycles prior to placement of the implant.
Longer if your cycles were longer. ...Read more

I've been on nexplanon for almost 2 years I've always had irregular periods this month I haven't gotten it yet no symptoms of pregnancy could I be?

Unlikely: Nexplanon is the most effective method of reversible contraception, because once it is placed, it works without any effort on patient's part until removed. If you are very anxious/concerned you can get and perform a urine pregnancy test from dollar store to reassure you. More likely you missed period due to stress, illness, excessive exercise or weight change.
