In brief: Will not decrease

The birth control implant (Implanon/Nexplanon) is extremely safe because it only releases the progestin, Etonogestrel.
There is no estrogen and so the risk of clots is MUCH lower than any combined method. Failure rate is 0.05% in a year, which is almost better than getting your tubes tied. It is effective within a week of insertion and won't be affected by ANY antibiotics (except rifampin).
