What are the chances of getting pregnant on nexplanon without condom?

What are the chances of getting pregnant on nexplanon without condom?

Very low: The Nexplanon implant contains a progestin, a hormone, which provides long-acting reversible contraception. It has been called the most effective form of birth control available with a failure rate of 0.05% after proper insertion. Adding a condom to this offers no measurable additional protection. However, also using a condom provides protection from sexually transmitted infection. ...Read more

It's June 25th and I still haven't got my period yet. I've had nexplanon for 2 years and with sex we use condoms. I'm getting worried. Should I be?

It's June 25th and I still haven't got my period yet. I've had nexplanon for 2 years and with sex we use condoms. I'm getting worried. Should I be?

No: One of the side effects of Nexplanon is irregularly irregular periods. In other words, periods aren't predicable. The nexplanon is an extremely reliable method of contraception with a failure rate of less than 1/2%. You are to be commended for also using the condoms. They help prevent STDs even if they aren't needed for contraception. Your risk of pregnancy is EXTREMELY small. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Nexplanon stopped my periods. The condom broke...Should I take plan b. How long before I can take a pregotest. I've been on nexplanon for 4-5months?

You can: When on nexplanon, as your doctor likely told you, it can stop your menses and this is completely okay. Your lining has thinned such that there isn't anything to bleed from. The chance of pregnancy with Nexplanon is 1%. It's awesome that you're using a condom too, to help prevent stds and serve as back up. Plan b will definitely help prevent ovulation, take as soon as possible to get benefit. ...Read more

Been on nexplanon for two years always practice safe sex with a condom. It's the 29th and I still haven't had my period yet. What's wrong?

Get pregnancy test: There is a chance that UR pregnant because occasionally condoms can leak or semen can leak between penis & condom. However, chances are remote because you are also taking birth control pills. Odds are that you have just missed a period which is quite common at this time of year with graduations &/or contemplating college or you or your BF might be apart from each other. Good Luck ...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.

I have the Nexplanon implant and have been taking antibiotics for this past week and had a condom break this morning. Should I take plan b? Can I?

I have the Nexplanon implant and have been taking antibiotics for this past week and had a condom break this morning. Should I take plan b? Can I?

You're protected: Nexplanon is one of the best methods of birth control on the market and will not be affected by antibiotics. In fact, only antibiotics that are given to treat tuberculosis will affect the efficacy of any birth control. I do not think that you need to take plan B. however if you are worried about STDs, I would get tested in a week. Plan B is not harmful in any case. Take care! ...Read more

I removed my nexplanon & the same day started Loestrin. I missed a pill & we don't use condoms. I have dull cramping & spotting. What's happening?

I removed my nexplanon & the same day started Loestrin. I missed a pill & we don't use condoms. I have dull cramping & spotting. What's happening?

Hormonal changes: The nexplanon has stronger hormones than the loestrin and the change probably caused you to have the cramping and spotting. To be on the safe side, if you had unprotected sex during this transition, it is probably a good idea to do a home pregnancy test to be sure. My guess would be it is just the change in the hormones. ...Read more

I'm on Nexplanon and had sex with a condom 9 days ago, and yesterday. Today, I had pink discharge when I wiped. I'm really scared it's implantation bleeding. Yesterday, the sex burned. What could the blood be from?

I'm on Nexplanon and had sex with a condom 9 days ago, and yesterday. Today, I had pink discharge when I wiped. I'm really scared it's implantation bleeding. Yesterday, the sex burned. What could the blood be from?

Most often: Implantation bleeding doesn't occur at all. When it does, it is usually just a very tiny amount of blood. If it burned when you had sex yesterday, the blood might be due to a small abrasion (especially if there was inadequate lubrication). You might have breakthrough bleeding. You can take an "early" pregnancy test now or wait about 2 weeks to take a regular home pregnancy test. Try not to worry ...Read more

No: The Nexplanon is very reliable and the risk of failure and pregnancy is extremely low. You do not need to use Plan B. Condoms should only be used to decrease the risk of STDs and are not necessary if you are sure that you are both STD free. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Sometimes I have sore breasts. Have been on Nexplanon since last August, no periods since and no condoms with husband. Pregnant? Or is a side effect?

Breast soreness: Breast tenderness is caused by many things. Nexplanon is a Progesterone only method so it does not typically cause breast tenderness. It also is highly effective making pregnancy unlikely. Weight gain, weight loss, diet changes, caffeine intake, changed in exercise patterns, ill fitting bras, and fibrocystic breast changes are common causes of breast tenderness in teenagers. ...Read more

On nexplanon for almost a year now. Also having sex with condoms. Breast are tender/sore but no period. What could be the issue?

Could be normal: Or you could be pregnant. This could be a result of normal hormonal variation (nexplanon doesn't suppress it completely), or you could have had a nexplanon failure and you could be pregnant. Have you peed on a stick yet?
