Etonogestrel Implant Side Effects
How do norethindrone and etonogestrel compare in terms of side effects, health risks, and patient satisfaction?
How do norethindrone, etonogestrel, and levonorgestrel compare in terms of health/safety risks, side effects, and androgenic activity?
Some answers: Androgenic activity wise from high to low: levonorgestrel, norethindrone, etonogestrel. Overall the health/safety risks are very similar. There is some small suggestion that 3rd generation progestins, like etonogestrel, have increased risk of thromboembolic disease like DVTs. Otherwise the androgenic effects are related to oily skin, acne, weight gain, glucose metabolism issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes. Normal.: When the Nexplanon is inserted, there is bruising which hurts and the trauma from the capsule which hurts like getting a big needle put in your arm. Remember your last tetanus or penicillin shot? You can take the out bandage off the next day, but if there are cloth tapes, leave that on until they fall off by themselves which may take a week. ...Read more

Risk vs benefits: Infection is the #1 risk which is less than 4% per 2004 study in journal neurosurgery spine. Less common risks include bleeding, nerve irritation/damage, allergic reaction, hardware malfunction, pain at implant site, dysesthesias, and spinal headache. The risks are fairly low in the hands of an experienced physician, and the benefits can be great. Talk to your doc about details. ...Read more
Disagree with Rx: First, not clear to me if you possess a VNS device, but removal can increase sz frequency. Furthermore, you are taking too many seizure meds, as after the first two, the benefit of the third is NO MORE than 3-4% improvement at best and the 4th is clearly egregious. You are best served by either surgery or the VNS unit, and you need to see an epilepsy specialist to get some direction here. ...Read more
Disagree with Rx: Why hasn't the stimulator been replaced, as the newer versions have better batteries and are far smaller? Usually cough occurs when VNS settings too aggressively set, not when removed. Removal may result in increased seizures, and maybe your cough is part of a partial seizure. Have you discussed this with your neurologist?? ...Read more

Recently had a Jadelle implant put in (5 months ago) after using an Implanon for six years. I am getting much more obvious side effects should I swap?
Implanon/nexplanon: Theoretically any symptoms you had with implanon will be the same with nexplanon. Having said that the symptoms you describe are side effects of progesterone only contraception such as the nexplanon. The symptoms are therefore expected side effects. Speak to your doctor. Perhaps there is another equally effective for you contraceptive. Maybe the nuvaring or OCPs if remembering daily meds is ok. ...Read more
Spotting: It is a great method, but the biggest drawback is irregular usually very light bleeding. Most people are not bothered by this and say it is light, but can be unpredictable. ...Read more
Irregular bleeding: You may experience some irregular bleeding. Ovulation resumes pretty quickly after removing the implant, so if you are not wanting pregnancy, you should consider birth control. If you are wanting pregnancy, wait until you have two normal periods before you start trying, to make sure you have a healthy uterine lining for implantation. ...Read more
