If I’m on the Nexplanon & I take a pregnancy test will it be truthful?

Great question!

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the most recent sexual contact.  The result can be trusted at this time.

Being on a form of birth control, like the Nexplanon will not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test.

Remember,  if someone has been on the Nexplanon for at least a week they are 99% protected from pregnancy for 3 years.  Hormonal forms of birth control like the Nexplanon do not protect against STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can do this!
