I have the Nexplanon implant, but I have always used condoms as well. Last night the condom broke, and I'm debating whether I should get emergency contraception.
I'd rather not take it as I had a bad experience with it before getting the implant (it was totally unnecessary then, but I can get paranoid about these things). On the other hand, a preganancy would be an even worse experience.

I know that if I were to talk to a healthcare professional I'd be told that the implant is 99% effective and that I should still use condoms. I was wondering how cautious other people are with these things.

Is it common to rely solely on the implant? And pardon the graphic-ness, if you use the implant but not condoms, do people ejaculate inside? Is that considered safe? (STI's excluded from discussion)

A pharmacy or GP wouldn't give emergency contraception to you, even if you asked for it as you are extremely well protected with the implant.

99.9% of couples who have sex regularly for one year (with no condoms) would not get pregnant. That's one couple in one thousand who would, having regular sex.

Generally people use long acting forms of contraception, like the implant, do so as they no longer have to worry about condoms or pregnancy (STIs aside).

So 1) You don't need (and wouldn't get) emergency contraception and 2) People using the implant have regular sex without using condoms and still with ejaculating inside as a very very effective method of contraception.

Hope that helps!

You're on one of the most reliable forms of contraception available and, if you're in a committed long term relationship, you don't need to use condoms. Obviously, use them if you have more than one sexual partner, use them to protect from stis, but the whole point of long term contraception is that they protect you from pregnancy so you don't need to use condoms and your partner can ejaculate inside you without worry.
You definitely do not need emergency contraception and you shouldn't be offered it.

Obviously, if you feel more comfortable continuing to use condoms, then do so, but a condom breaking, or forgetting or running out and not using one once in a while or even foregoing them altogether is so unlikely to get you pregnant. You'd have to be ridiculously unlucky to get pregnant using the implant.

Not for contraception, no. The implant is the single most reliable form of contraception there is, even more so than having a sterilisation op.

It is almost impossible. It is safe to rely on the implant for contraception for 3 years - if it wasn't, they would advise changing it more frequently.

He took off the condom but we were talking for a a while and the he started rubbing it on my vagina (he didn’t clean off his 🍆 before doing this) but he didn’t put it in. So that mean I Could’ve get pregnant? Even if It’s active for 6 moths ?
