Had a jadelle implant 4 months ago. I just had sex and my bf ejaculated inside me. What is that chance of pregnancy?

Had a jadelle implant 4 months ago. I just had sex and my bf ejaculated inside me. What is that chance of pregnancy?

Very Low chance: Jadelle is very good contraception. In the trial to determine effectiveness, 8 women out of 1393 women became pregnant over 5 years of use. That is. 57% over 5 years (or. 11% a year). You don't need to use the "Pull out method" for it to work. Your chance of pregnancy after 1 episode of intercourse is not zero but very close to it. Best wishes! ...Read more
