No Condom With Nexplanon
Using nexplanon. What's the chance of getting pregnant from not using a condom? Is it safe to not use a condom while on nexplanon?
Nexplanon: Nexplanon is a contraceptive implant. It is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. The best reason for using a condom while on nexplanon is to protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STD). If you have sex without a condom, you are protected against pregnancy but not protected from STD. Always use a condom when having sex for STD protection. ...Read more

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
On nexplanon, I had sex. When he pulled out just the condom was left behind he did not nut. It's less likely I'll get pregnant?
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

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%.

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?
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
Protected sex 2days ago On birth control nexplanon. Today went to the bathroom found piece of the condom in me. But he did not cum inside me pregnant?

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
