I had sex w/o a condom and he did ejaculate in me after sex I had a clear fluid Should I be worried about pregnancy I've been on nexplanon for 2 wks

Additional use of a condom improves your chance to be pregnancy-free, AND it protect you and your partner from STDs, (which the implant does not). ...Read more

If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
