So I ended my period on sunday and started my first pack on monday. When will I be protected against pregnancy? Details about nexplanon?

So I ended my period on sunday and started my first pack on monday. When will I be protected against pregnancy? Details about nexplanon?

Starting BC: Because cycle length can vary, best to wait a full pack to guarantee protection against an unplanned pregnancy. Nexplanon is not for everyone, but if you have used birth control pills well, it may be an option because it works very quickly and you don't need to take it every day so it's ideal it you tend to forget taking the pill. ...Read more

Can you get a period and have pregnancy symptoms? I'm on nexplanon and I feel pregnant I feel very hungry and sleepy

Can you get a period and have pregnancy symptoms? I'm on nexplanon and I feel pregnant I feel very hungry and sleepy

Side Effect: Nexplanon is a Progesterone only birth control method. Progesterone levels are normally elevated just prior to your menstrual period and also in pregnancy. So using a progesterone only method can make you feel pregnant, hungry and sleepy. If this is new for you, you might do a home pregnancy test to be sure. But most likely it is a side-effect of Nexplanon. Best wishes! ...Read more

Hello I just done a bleach pregnancy test I'm on nexplanon and it's came up all fizzy and frothy? Is that positive

Hello I just done a bleach pregnancy test I'm on nexplanon and it's came up all fizzy and frothy? Is that positive

The only positive...: The only positive conclusion from any sort of bleach pregnancy test is that you have to go to the store and buy a real urine pregnancy test. They are inexpensive, very accurate at 3 weeks after sex, and sold everywhere. Also, when using bleach, be sure not to wear colored, nice clothes because any accidental splashes will just leave bleach spots on the clothes. ...Read more

My boyfriend finished in me, I'm on nexplanon. Chances of pregnancy?

My boyfriend finished in me, I'm on nexplanon. Chances of pregnancy?

Very low chance.: Nexplanon has a 0.5% failure rate, so the most accurate answer is, Yes, you COULD be pregnant but it's extremely unlikely. 0.5% means that for every 200 intercourse events without a condom, there will be 1 pregnancy. 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

I'm having early symptoms of pregnancy but I'm also on nexplanon which has similar side effects also I have irregular cycles when should I take a test?

I'm having early symptoms of pregnancy but I'm also on nexplanon which has similar side effects also I have irregular cycles when should I take a test?

3 weeks after sex: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
