No: "Rejection" refers to the immune system attacking something in the body. This requires certain types of protein to happen, and the Nexplanon does not have anything on it that can stimulate this type of immune attack. That being said, it can be pushed out, move into a problematic position, develop an infection, or cause an allergic reaction. All problems but technically not "rejection."
