Patient : What are my chances of pregnancy while on the birthcontrol nexplanon
Doctor :   Hello, Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query. Fewer than one in 1,000 women using an implant will become pregnan t each year. Birth control implant studies have not included obese women, so the implants may not be as effective if you are obese. Certain medications can also lessen the effectiveness of birth control implants. Talk to your doctor to learn more in your case. Take care.
