I got my implant on November 12 and it's currently the 19th. I received my Nexplanon insertion about a week after my last day of my last period. The doctor didn't give me any details or talk to me much, and even making the appointment took a lot of trouble. Getting a hold of them is completely impossible, even if I have questions. So my question is, do I have to wait seven days after the days of insertion, or does the day of insertion count as one of those days? I'm wondering and not quite sure.
Yes you should wait until 7 days have passed. If you get it in the first 5 days of your period you don't have to wait but otherwise you do.
