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

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

If you are on the Implanon for birth control do you need to use condoms or can you use the birth control alone to prevent pregnancy?

Implanon alone works: The contraceptive implant alone prevents pregnancy. Adding condoms adds a tiny bit of additional protection, but has the added benefit of protection against sexually transmitted diseases, and perhaps makes vaginal odors less likely. ...Read more

I spotted on implanon a few days ago and just had sex today. Do I have a greater chance of pregnancy?

No you should not: Implanon releases a constant dose of a progestin which prevents you from ovulating thereby reducing your chances of getting pregnant whether you experience some vaginal spotting or bleeding. Therefore, you should not have " a greater chance of pregnancy" . ...Read more

How many days should I wait before taking a pregnancy test after having unprotected sex? I am on implanon.

How many days should I wait before taking a pregnancy test after having unprotected sex? I am on implanon.

On Implanon: You are on Implanon so it should be negative. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...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

Implanon action: Implanon is a Progesterone contraceptive that should be effective for up to 3 years. It usually causes "abnormal bleeding". You tell us that the Implanon has been in for about 2 years and now your menses are regular which might be a sign of decreasing effect. I do not have much experience with Implanon but i suggest that you review with your doc because you don't want a failure. Good luck. ...Read more

There : There has been much debate over this topic. Some doctors tell their patients to use a back-up method while on antibiotics, while others do not. Personally I do not advise my patient to use a back up while taking antibiotics, for me there is not enough scientific literature out there supporting any effect.
If you suspect you may be pregnant (miss your next cycle) then obviously take a pregnancy test, but i suspect you are fine.
Take care. ...Read more

Low: The chance of pregnancy with a long-acting contraceptive like the Nexplanon implant is low, less than 1%. You should always do a pregnancy test, though, if you have concerns. Condoms are never a bad idea and necessary to protect you from sexually transmitted infections. ...Read more

I had sex on feb. 14. I got my implanon out Wednesday 25th n later that night I threw up, I did take a pregnancy test it come out negative. Help ?

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

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
