Doctor insights on:
I am on implanon, I bleed one week n then the next week I have sharp sharp bad pains and my period come on again. I go see my doctor and she prescribe?
I am currently on nexplanon and am very worried about gaining weight . I am wondering if Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) that I have just been prescribed will counteract it.
Yes , but...: Adderal will decrease your appetite but rather than letting it do so, it is important right now that you make it a point to be well nourished. Try to limit yourself to nutrient dense foods so you do not lose weight. Make sure you eat breakfast before taking your Adderal and try to get at least five servings of fruits and vegs a day. Remember water. ...Read more
What do you mean: Do you mean, can the rod break and still function? I've never heard of a rod breaking in the skin. If that were to happen, I would return to the doctor or clinic that put the Nexplanon in and they would likely replace it and send a defective device back to the manufacturer. If you're speaking of a different kind of 'breakage' then consider rephrasing your question. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Nexplanon: The pregnancy rate for nexplanon is very low. With a negative pregnancy test the likelihood of a pregnancy is also very low. The symptoms you describe can all be related to side effects of the nexplanon. Is this a relatively new method of contraception for you? If so, the symptoms should improve as you become more adjusted to it. If long time, perhaps a different method would work better for you. ...Read more
Nothing: All birth control have a failure rate. Nexplanon is very low. There is nothing that significantly effects it's failure rate.

We are encouraging use of LARCs to reduce the incidence of unintended pregnancies. ...Read more
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." ...Read more
