How effective is NEXPLANON (etonogestrel implant)?

NEXPLANON is one of the most effective birth control options available.
NEXPLANON is over 99% effective (less than 1 pregnancy per 100 women who used NEXPLANON for 1 year), which means it’s just as effective as the pill. NEXPLANON does not need to be taken daily, weekly or monthly.
It’s not known if NEXPLANON is as effective in very overweight women because clinical studies of NEXPLANON did not include many overweight women.
