Side effect: Nexplanon frequently causes what is referred to as irregularly irregular bleeding.That is bleeding that is unpredictable .That is the most likely cause.Pregnancy is highly unlikely.You could have infection.You should be using condoms to decrease the risk of STDs unless you are in a long term mutually monogamous relationship.Vaginal infections usually cause a discharge but it is not brown.
