Copper IUD as emergency contraception?

I have the nexplanon (implant) in my arm. I am also on the medication Rifampin, which is known to decrease effectiveness in birth control. 

Had unprotected sex last night (pulled out). I took a Plan B, but rifampin also decreases plan B. 

Should I consider getting a copper IUD as a more effective way to prevent pregnancy? And would that mean that the doctors have to take out the nexplanon before inserting the IUD?
