Ask the Health Educator: Antibiotics and Implant

Question from May 22, 2015

Everything I’m finding on nexplonon shows nothing about contraindications about antibiotic use. Is nexplonon the same as the pill where antibiotics lowers the effectiveness of the nexplonon?

Answer:

If a person is using an antibiotic, we always recommend they use a back up method, such as condoms or abstinence, in addition to their regular birth control method. If you have more specific questions, please contact a nurse at your local clinic.
