How soon after implanting nexplanon is it safe to have sex without any other protection, if inserted about 2-3 weeks after my last period?

In brief: 7 days

Nexplanon is effective almost immediately.
I usually advise my patients to use backup for about 7 days just to be safe. Since your insertion was 3 weeks ago you are protected.
