Unclear: It is unclear exactly what you are finding is abnormal and what area is hard. Nexplanon is a very effective method and pregnancy on Nexplanon is exceedingly rare.

Hi I have had unprotected sex for the past two weeks in on nexplnon implant and I started noticing my lower stomach whereby bikini line is hard when I?
Nothing: All birth control have a failure rate. Nexplanon is very low. There is nothing that significantly effects it's failure rate.

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.

I'm 27 years old, on the nexplenon for over 1 1/2 years and have been bleeding for 3 weeks non-stop with no signs of stoping or lightinng up.

Some women never experience bleeding while others either bleed the entire time or have intermittent bleeding such as the kind you are experiencing. If it becomes too bothersome, there are ways to help and you will need to see your gyno for this. ...Read more
