So me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex …..

…..and he came in me..I have the Nexplanon implant in my arm for 4 months..and I’m just scared of getting pregnant from that.

Great question!

When someone starts a new hormonal birth control method for the first time, they need to use a back-up method or abstain for the first week. After that first week, the hormones are integrated into the body and will start to protect against pregnancy.

After that week, Nexplanon protects against pregnancy up to 99% for 3 years, even if ejaculation in the vagina occurs.

Remember, hormonal methods of birth control ( like the Nexplanon) do not protect against STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can protect against STIs. You can get condoms and dental dams for free at Teen Clinic!
