Can I get pregnant if it expires and its still in my arm
It is still active until the date they gave you for a new one. You can get pregnant if it expires and its still in your arm. After expiration there isn't the right amount of hormones if there are any. You shouldn't let it in your arm, it can cause trouble and require surgical removal if left in too long.
If you are planning to try to get pregnant, you need to get it removed. It will no longer protect you from pregnancy after it expires but it may still release a certain amount of hormones and you dont want to expose the fetus to these hormones so your best bet it to have it removed before trying to get pregnant.
