That is a great question! Lets talk a little bit about the Nexplanon.
The Nexplanon is a single matchstick-sized rod that is placed underneath the skin in your upper arm. A nurse or doctor inserts the rod. Once inserted, the rod releases hormones gradually for up to three years.
Nexplanon is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy for up to three years, even if ejacuiation in the vagina occurs. It does not protect against any STIs! Only Condoms and Dental Dams can reduce the risk of STIs
