So I stopped having a period almost a year ago due to Nexplanon, I'm not concerned or anything because it's common, but why does it stop? Is I'd i because it stops an egg from going into the ovary or? Just want to know if this means that it's practialy impossible for me to be pregnant.
The possibility of pregnancy is extremely low. The implant affects your hormones and that's why some women have lighter or no periods while on birth control.
The manufacturers claim around less than eight to 15 pregnancies per 15,000 potential pregnancies per year; as for the lack of a period (s) a lot of girls are quite similar, wondering about the unknown. The biggest issue is the hormone or combination of hormones and how they are metabolised in the body that dictate annoyance and up to and including unpleasant side effects.
It means that it is practically impossible for you to get pregnant.
