Becoming pregnant on nexplanon

Whether you're looking for general information about NEXPLANON or something specific, here are some answers to many common questions. NEXPLANON is a small, flexible birth control implant that provides up to 3 years of continuous pregnancy prevention.
Even though the NEXPLANON implant must be removed after 3 years, your health care provider can insert a new implant in your arm after taking out the old one.
NEXPLANON keeps the egg from being released by your ovaries and prevents sperm from reaching the egg by delivering a steady, low dose of hormones into your bloodstream.
The following chart shows the chance of getting pregnant for women who use different methods of birth control. It is not known if NEXPLANON is as effective in very overweight women because studies did not include many overweight women. Your health care provider will place and remove the NEXPLANON implant in his or her office. Immediately after the NEXPLANON implant has been placed, you and your health care provider should check that the implant is in your arm by feeling for it. If at any time you or your healthcare provider cannot feel the NEXPLANON implant, use a non-hormonal birth control method (such as condoms) until your healthcare provider confirms that the implant is in place.
You will be asked to review and sign a consent form prior to inserting the NEXPLANON implant.


If there are medicines that you have been taking for a long time that make NEXPLANON less effective, tell your health care provider. When you are using NEXPLANON, tell all of your health care providers that you have NEXPLANON in place in your arm. You should see your health care provider right away if you think that you might be pregnant. If you are breastfeeding your child, you may use NEXPLANON if 4 weeks have passed since you had your baby. Talk to your health care provider about using NEXPLANON if you have diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, headaches, gallbladder or kidney problems, history of depressed mood, high blood pressure, allergy to numbing medicines (anesthetics) or medicines used to clean your skin (antiseptics). Immediately after the NEXPLANON (etonogestrel implant) implant has been placed, you and your health care provider should check that the implant is in your arm by feeling for it.
Please read the accompanying Patient Information for NEXPLANON and discuss it with your health care provider. If you do not want to get pregnant after removal, you should start another birth control method right away. Your health care provider may remove the NEXPLANON implant and recommend a birth control method that can be used effectively with these medicines.
It is important to remove NEXPLANON and make sure that the pregnancy is not ectopic (occurring outside the womb).


If you and your health care provider cannot feel the NEXPLANON implant, use a non-hormonal birth control method (such as condoms) until your health care provider confirms that the implant is in place.
If the implant is not removed, then the effects of NEXPLANON will continue for a longer period of time. Based on experience with other hormonal contraceptives, NEXPLANON is not likely to cause birth defects. The box on the bottom of the chart shows the chance of getting pregnant for women who do not use birth control and are trying to get pregnant.
If you are breastfeeding and want to use NEXPLANON, talk with your health care provider for more information. If NEXPLANON is covered, ask the customer service representative to send verification of coverage to your health care provider.
