Yes, Nexplanon can be associated with depression.

In brief: Yes

During clinical trials of Nexplanon there was reported a 5.
5% incidence of depression with 1% of patients dropping out of the trial because of depression. While the incidence of depression is fairly low, it obviously can be associated with nexplanon.
