i had the implant put in 3 days ago. my period is due today and always comes like clockwork (due to being on pill for 5 years.) been using pill and condoms so shouldnt be pregnant. can nexplanon stop a period that fast?
Yes your period could be off due to the new hormone,,And I believe it's 7 days after it was put in that you are safe for sex unless doctor told you differently. so it's okay with condoms as you are doing.your body is adjusting to the new form of hormone.
thanks so much for replying. the nurse actually seemed unsure of whether i would need to wait at all because i would be having my break anyway. will definitely be using condoms for a while still. thank you.
No problem at all better being safe then sorry. From what I was reading the doctor should have told you when it was safe to know the implant was effective And that it could cause some problems with the period. But anyway you should just be fine Have a good day
