Maybe pregnant? Effectiveness of birth control?

Hi! I’m 24, and weight 312lbs. Was 345 but I’ve been working on it and that’s where I’m at as of now. I’ve had had Nexplanon for 3yrs (well it’ll be 3yrs next month)....I recently had sex with my bf and the condom broke...does anyone know the effectiveness of nexplanon in overweight women? Since it expires next month does it really not work anymore? Or do they actually last five years? Or should women take them out after 3yrs? Because I’m overweight does it work less or run out faster? I’ve started getting my periods again but I read that could happen around like the 3rd year or does that mean it’s not working anymore?

Kinda freaked. Stressed. Please help! Thanks!
