Unlikely.: Only a few antibiotics which are quite old and very rarely used have ever been shown to interfere with hormonal birth control. While being treated for your kidney infection you should avoid intercourse, as it could increase your pain; however, the medicines for this will not make your Nexplanon less effective.
