Nexplanon is a hormonal birth control implant that prevents pregnancy for up to three years. A tiny plastic rod implanted in the arm releases a hormone called etonogestrel into your body slowly over a three-year period. Etonogestrel inhibits ovulation, thickens vaginal fluid and causes changes to the lining of the uterus to prevent fertilization. Nexplanon may not work well for you if you are very overweight or if you are taking certain medications.
