What Is Nexplanon?

Nexplanon is a hormone-releasing birth control implant for use by women to prevent pregnancy for up to 3 years. Nexplanon is a soft, flexible rod about the size of a matchstick that is inserted under the skin of a woman's upper arm. It is a progestin-only method of birth control and does not contain any estrogen. Nexplanon is a long term contraception method and is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.

How Does It Work?

Nexplanon contains the active ingredient Etonogestrel, which is a progestin hormone. It is released continuously into the bloodstream from the implant. This hormone prevents pregnancy in a few different ways, the most important way is by preventing ovulation, or the release of an egg from the ovary. It also thins out the uterine lining and increases the thickness of the mucus in the cervix, making it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. The implant must be changed every 3 years.

How Effective Is Nexplanon

Nexplanon, when inserted correctly is over 99% effective. That's less than one pregnancy per 100 women who use Nexplanon for one year. It is not known if Nexplanon is as effective in very overweight women, because clinical studies did not include many overweight women. Certain medicines may make Nexplanon less effective, it's recommended to use an additional barrier method of contraception while using these medicines. Nexplanon does not protect against sexually transmitted infections including HIV.
