Hi, I’ve had the Nexplanon for 7 months…

…My boyfriend and I are sexually active. We want to “go” allll the way. But we’re un sure if this will end up with me pregnant. Will it?

Thanks for asking this!

It takes the Nexplanon (and all hormonal forms of birth control) 1 week to become effective.  It is recommended to use a backup method during this week (like condoms or abstinence). After someone has had the Nexplanon for 1 week, it protects against pregnancy up to 99% for 3 years, even if ejaculation in the vagina occurs.

Remember, hormonal forms of birth control like the Nexplanon do not reduce the risk of STIs, only condoms and dental dams can do this.
