Why Does My Nexplanon Implant Feel Lumpy
Nexplanon: The capsule for the nexplanon such be superficial enough for you to feel it along its entire length.
Yes: There is no contraindication to receiving a massage if you have a Nexplanon implant. I would advise, however, prior to the massage that you notify the masseuse of the implant and it's location so he/she can avoid massaging that area as pressing on the implant can cause local discomfort or irritation.See 1 more doctor answer
If I take 50mg of Topromax a day and I have a Nexplanon Implant does that make it work less effective??
Nexplanon vs Topomax: The effectiveness should NOT be affected but you may have break through bleeding with this combination. If this becomes bothersome discuss with your doctor another medication in place of Topomax
Expected side effect: Nexplanon is an implant that releases hormones slowly to allow contraception and prevents pregnancy. Unfortunately, you can have irregular bleeding secondary to it that may or may not resolve with few cycles. See how you feel about it and speak to your obgyn if heavy bleeding occurs.
Great question: To which you are unlikely to get a straightforward answer. Try writing the manufacturer of Nexplanon, or csLimb their toll-free number. As you already know, tetracyclines can reduce oral contraceptive efficacy. If the drug company can say with confidence that Nexplanon will be effective, let us know.See 1 more doctor answer
Not enough info. ..: We don't know enough about Garcinia gambogia (http://www. Webmd. Com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-818-GARCINIA. Aspx? ActiveIngredientId=818&activeIngredientName=GARCINIA), certainly not enough to determine drug-drug interaction w/any certainty. Best to avoid. . .
It remains effective: The hormones in your subdermal implants should continue to reduce your risks of pregnancy quite effectively and should not be affected by the antibiotics in your gastrointestinal tract.
I just had my nexplanon implant removed on Monday. Is there anything special to do for wound care?
How easy can the Nexplanon implant break? And if it does, will it still work for the rest of the 3 years?
Nexplanon: Nexplanon is a flexible plastic so would be very difficult to break. If there is concern that it has broken, your doctor may order an ultrasound of your arm to evaluate. If the Nexplanon is damaged, then it may need to be removed.
Would it negatively affect my health or its effectiveness if I were to be tattooed over the nexplanon implant?
It's your choice: It won't interfere with the medicine. I'm a tattoo buff and have three. But you need to be VERY sure it's what you want. Wait several years after you get the original idea and if it is EXACTLY what you want, go for it. It hurts. But mine are so meaningful I would not trade the pain for any pleasure I can imagine. Follow your dream, think for a LONG time, and then make the right choice.See 1 more doctor answer
Does Levonelle reduce the effectiveness of nexplanon implant had it fitted 12 days ago and took levonelle 8 days ago.
Can you go swimming with nexplanon implant? And if so, how long do you have to wait to go after having it fitted? Thanks :-)
Just got the nexplanon implant two weeks ago and this morning I had this huge white membraneous clot. It was rubbery. Is this normal?
Further info needed: I need further information. Is the site of insertion healed? Is it the insertion site where you have this white discharge? Or is it elsewhere? Is the skin at the site of insertion as well as over the implant (which you should be able to feel under your skin) red or sore to touch? Blood clots are usually dark red, not white--can you give amore detailed description?
Does the nuvaring and Nexplanon at the same time cancel each other out? I accidentally left my nuvaring on for the first 6 days of my implant
I have 2 kids, im on bc, nexplanon implant. I've had it for a year and half no problems what so ever, cycles all have been good until now. 6 days late.
Nexplanon bleed: Irregular bleeding is an almost universal side effect of nexplanon. There is no normal time for your period on this birth control method. Irregular bleeding can be annoying but it does not mean that the method is not working. This side effect is very typical of Progesterone only birth control
My nexplanon implant feels very thin and grainy. I am over weight and it has been insitu since December 2013 is there a chance it's not working propel?
Women using: Nexplanon are instructed to check that it is in place. You should be able to feel the small rod. It is unlikely that it has become altered and suffered any degradation...it is more likely to have migrated or moved a bit such that it feels different when you try to locate it. For reassurance, I would probably check in at your doctor's office and have them feel it, too. Good wishes:)
