I got my period September 18 and had nexplanon insterted September 22. I was supposed to wait until September 29 for Nexplanon to kick in. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on September 28. I've read nexplanon kicks in ASAP if inserted first five days of period. I'm still kind of worried, could I be pregnant?
You're right, its protecting you right away if you get it during your period. The implant is almost 100% protective. The one thing that bothers me is your dr told you to wait and you didn't follow directions. There is a reason we get directions, we are supposed to follow them.
