Nexplanon implant help

Hi! I've had Nexplanon since 2015. I just got my third implant installed 4 days ago (I know they last for 5yrs but I like to change mine every 3). The doctor said I needed to wait 7 days to have sex. My boyfriend and I like idiots fooled around last night. He penetrated me but there was no ejaculation because we stopped before he could get to tat point. I know that precum exists and it can contain sperm. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant? I also read that if you get Nexplanon inserted within the first five days of your period you're immediately protected. I got mine inserted on the 4th day of my period.  I'm assuming there's a high chance I'm pregnant since I didn't wait enough time but I just wanted to ask and get some insight. Thanks!

If the fooling around was on day 8 after your period, and the doctor said you should wait a few more days than you did, there's a chance you could get pregnant, but calling it a "high" chance is an exaggeration.

A couple using no birth control that has unprotected sex at the right time of the month has only about a 20% chance of getting pregnant in a given month. If the implant was already in for 4 days, it will be giving you hormones. Though the doc said 7 days and you waited only 4, it's still pretty likely to have prevented ovulation, and if so, whether he had sperm in his pre-ejaculatory fluid or not wouldn't make any difference. And ovulation does not automatically mean pregnancy -- your chances won't be higher than couples actively trying to get pregnant have in a given month.

I realize 20% is not 0%, but try not to worry. Take an early-results pregnancy test in a couple of weeks and then forget it.

Hey there.  Personally, I think you are probably good. He didn't ejaculate, you went from one nexplanon straight to the next and would guess that you still had some of the hormones in your system.  Of course, not full  proof and always best to follow what doctor says.  Anniebrooke has given you great info.  In 2.5 weeks, if you worry you may have gotten pregnant (again, seems unlikely but not able to completely rule out), you can take a urine home pregnancy test.
