Hello, Anon. 

Thank you for your message.

What did your doctor say upon removal?  You may or may not get a period right away after stopping Nexplanon. But it is possible to get pregnant soon after. So, if you don't wish to become pregnant, it's best to use another method of birth control right away.  Home pregnancy tests are accurate 14-21 days after sex. If you think you tested too soon, you can test again to be sure. A blood test, which is more sensitive in detecting early pregnancy, can also be taken.
