Be patient. It might just take a little while for your hormones to balance. Keep taking your pills daily. Hopefully the bleeding will stop soon. Get through this entire pill pack. If you are still bleeding when you start your 2nd pill pack, call your doctor. There a few tricks sometimes we'll recommend, but sometimes you also just need a different brand pill. Good luck. :) Read more...

If I take over-the-counter estrogen pills for breakthrough bleeding while on Nexplanon will the effectiveness of the birth control be affected?

No OTC estrogen. There are no OTC estrogens. There are OTC meds that claim to estrogenic activity, but estrogen requires a prescription. Plan B, which OTC, is a progestin.
