I have the Nexplanon and just recently got diagnosed with a severe Kidney Infection. I was prescribed Cipro will it interfere with being effective?

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. ...Read more

I : I think that your Implanon should be working just fine. I couldn't find any articles directly addressing the question of Ciprofloxacin and the Progesterone in implanon, but i did find a study that showed no lessened effect of an oral birth control pill and Ciprofloxacin (see below). There is no interaction with vaccinations. No worries!

Abstract
several antibiotics have been reported to lessen the ovarian suppression produced by oral contraceptive agents, as a result of drug interactions. The present investigation was designed to study the likelihood of the occurrence of any such interaction between the fluoroquinolone antibiotic Ciprofloxacin (ciproxin) at a dosage of 500 mg twice a day and the "low-dose" oral contraceptive marvelon (30 microgram of ethinyl Estradiol [ee] plus 150 microgram of desogestrel). Twenty-four healthy female volunteers were studied in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized crossover trial. There were no significant differences between measurements of the area under the concentration-time curve of ee up to 24 h after oral contraceptive intake during placebo and Ciprofloxacin administration on days 11 and 16 of the cycles, indicating the absence of pharmacokinetic interaction. Similarly, no clinically significant differences in the levels of sex hormone binding globulin were found between the placebo and Ciprofloxacin cycles, indicating no major variation in ee levels during Ciprofloxacin and placebo treatment. Ten subjects in each of the placebo and Ciprofloxacin groups had early-follicular-phase levels of 17-beta Estradiol (<184 ng/liter) at one or more points during their cycles, but none had values above the early-follicular-phase range, indicating no significant ovarian activity. In addition, all subjects had Progesterone levels of <2 ng/ml, indicating the absence of ovulation. Only two subjects, who received the placebo, had evidence of sustained follicular growth to a potentially ovulatory follicle ( approximately 18 mm). We conclude that Ciprofloxacin does not interfere with the ovarian suppression produced by the low-dose oral contraceptive marvelon. ...Read more

Switching antibiotics from bactrim to Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin). Bactrim stopped last night/taken for 5 days. Is it ok to start cipro (ciprofloxacin) today or are there any interactions?

It is ok: You didn't say what you were taking the antibiotics for- I am assuming urinary tract infection? Also, I am assuming a medical provider told you to switch and start cipro (ciprofloxacin). If so - there are no significant interactions (as long as you're not allergic). ...Read more
