I'm 32 had nexplanon removed 4 days ago what are my chances of getting pregnant off of boyfriends precum?

I'm 32 had nexplanon removed 4 days ago what are my chances of getting pregnant off of boyfriends precum?

Chances are low: "Precum" is unlikely to cause pregnancy. It's also unlikely to get pregnant just 4 days after removing Nexplanon because it may not have been enough time for the Nexplanon hormone to go away, for the cervical mucus to return to normal, and for the ovaries to start ovulating again. ...Read more

On 7/3 I had a tubal ligation and nexplanon removed. Still no period should I be worried or is this normal?

Probably: It will probably take a while for it all to get out of your system. How long? That probably varies, But the best sign is development regular periods (or getting pregnant). So decide if you want to get pregnant or not and act accordingly. If not, get on an alternate form of birth control toute suite (that's "pronto" for those of you in the West...). ...Read more

Just had nexplanon removed yesterday and started spotting today, is this a period? And can I continue to try to get pregnant?

Maybe: It can take several days to a week to have your first period. I recommend waiting until after your next period (a month from now) before trying to get pregnant. That gives time for the lining of the uterus to become normal. Good luck. ...Read more

Is there a reason I have been ovulating for almost 2 straight weeks? Recently had Nexplanon removed & have no period but have been ovulating every day

Is there a reason I have been ovulating for almost 2 straight weeks? Recently had Nexplanon removed & have no period but have been ovulating every day

Ovulating daily???: Nexplanon is an implant which contains progestins, and if you are basing the "daily ovulation" on your elevated basal body temperature, it may be because of the elevated progestins still remaining from Nexplanon. In any case, your period may not happen until two weeks after a true ovulatory event, which as with any progestin type of birth control, may take more time. ...Read more

Should I get the contraceptive implant (nexplanon) removed if it's causing me complications?

Should I get the contraceptive implant (nexplanon) removed if it's causing me complications?

Yes, but make sure: If you are experiencing troublesome side effects from the nexplanon, then you should consider removing it. Just make sure that the symptoms you are experiencing are due to the nexplanon, and should get better once it's removed. And make sure you will be able to have another effective method of birth control if you don't want to conceive. ...Read more

Be patient: It might just take a little while for your hormones to balance. Keep taking your pills daily. Hopefully the bleeding will stop soon. Get through this entire pill pack. If you are still bleeding when you start your 2nd pill pack, call your doctor. There a few tricks sometimes we'll recommend, but sometimes you also just need a different brand pill. Good luck. :) ...Read more

I had my implant nexplanon removed on the 22 August 2017 and still no bleed and all pregnancy tests negative? Is this normal? Look to TTC.

4 -5 weeks: It likely will take 4 - 5 weeks before your period.
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

Do you know how birth control nexplanon is removed?

Do you know how birth control nexplanon is removed?

Minor procedure: It's done in the doctor's office. The doctor will inject local anesthetic into the skin next to the nexplanon; once it is numb, then he or she will make a small incision with a scalpel through the skin, then use a small sterile surgical clamp to reach under the skin, grasp the Nexplanon and pull it out through the skin incision. Then a steristrip is placed over the incision with a gauze and wrappe. ...Read more
