Thanks for asking!
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, but it does not protect against any STIs!
Once someone has the Nexplanon removed, they are able to get pregnant right away.
So, if there was a possibility sperm came into contact with the vagina there is a risk of pregnancy. It is also important to remember pregnancy is based on ovulation, not when someone is having their period. Ovulation is the process in which an egg is released. Ovulation can happen at any time during someone’s period, making pregnancy possible during, before,and after the period.
It would be a good idea to consider another form of birth control, most methods can be up to 99% effective. Remember, condoms can reduce the risk of pregnancy & STIs up to 98% when used correctly
