Yes It Can: Implanon/nexplanon is a single progestin-containing rod, which provides highly effective reversible contraception for up to three years, when inserted subdermally in the non-dominant arm. Implanon/nexplanon rods should only be inserted/removed by a certified trained clinician. If the rod has been inserted properly, it should be easy to remove, and usually takes only two-four minutes after prep.
