    So I'm going to get the implant next week and I'm not worried about it or anything but there's question that's been bugging me and I apologise if its graphic or anything.

    Is it generally ok to have skin on skin contact/bareback after getting the implant or not?

    It's the whole point, if you have a trusted partner. I think it's a very good method of contraception.

    The implant is a staggeringly reliable method of contraception, more so than having a sterilisation op.

    You may have to wait a few days before it is effective - it will depend at what point in your cycle you have it - but you can ask wherever you're having it done.

    Oh, but it provides zero protection against STIs, so if you have any concerns about those, continuing to use condoms is still an option.

    Im on my 3rd implant now...no issues or problems except sometimles random periods in last year before replacement...but doctor/nurse has tablets for that to kick it back into sync....as for bare back....not a good move unless you can most definitely trust your other half 150% to not go off and be a dirty dog...
    The implant is to help prevent unwanted pregnancy.... It is by no means protection against sexual diseases.....as it was said in previous comment ...
    So many youngsters today need to be educated more on sexual health...probably why all the old sexual diseases are reappearing....
    So unless you know your boyfriend totally 100% inside and out then i suggest carry rain macs to prevent spreading of any sexual diseases....bare back definitely isnt an option

    If you're in a relationship and you and your partner know that you don't have any STIs then yes. You might have to wait a week for it to become effective if you didn't get it fitted whilst on your period though.

    I would advise not to get it, I had it inserted 4 weeks ago and I have completely changed, my moods are everywhere and I literally feel like I hate everyone close to me. I've never had problems like this before it literally started maybe 2 days after having it!!!
