Can you get pregnant even when you have withdrawal bleeding from nexplanon removal?

Can you get pregnant even when you have withdrawal bleeding from nexplanon removal?

Unsure of question: If you had your Nexplanon removed and you had sex and he withdrew as a means of contraception, yes, you can get pregnant. It's true that for some women, there's a delay in fertility after Nexplanon is removed, however, it's impossible to say if you will have that issue or not. You should plan on the fact that you can get pregnant right away as soon as Nexplanon is removed. Regardless of bleeding. ...Read more

I am on nexplanon and have had my cycle for 2 months now. Is there a way or prescription to stop the bleeding completely?

Pills might help: Unfortunately, irregularly irregular bleeding is the most common side-effect of Nexplanon. You may stop bleeding completely for awhile and then start again but the irregularly (as in unpredictable) irregular bleeding is not uncommon. Birth control pills might help but you do have to remember to take them at the same time every day. Hope this helps ...Read more
