Nesplanon: Nexplanon is a progestin implant, and may decrease female libido, but testosterone is a male hormone, and while occasionally prescribed in the form of a medication like " Estratest or Estratest HS" , testosterone may produce masculinizing effects which may be in some instances not reversible. Oral bcps may be an alternative to Nexplanon. Ask your gyn physician.

No and yes: It may not make your gynecomastia away, and it will be easier to build muscle, but your balls will grow smaller and you will have increased risk of prostate issues.

See your doctor.: Low sex drive is a common side effect of antidepressants, particularly the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris). Your provider may be able to switch you to a different medication with fewer sexual side effects, or recommend ways to approach this in your relationship with your husband. You may want to discuss this issue with your doctor to see what options are available.
