Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've been experiencing nauseated diarrhea and congestion lately, and I feel like I have the flu. Could this be related to my Nexplanon implant?

Nausea, stomach cramping/bloating, dizziness, headache, breast tenderness, acne, hair loss, weight gain, and vaginal irritation/discharge may occur with Nexplanon. Additionally, pain, bruising, numbness, infection, or scarring at the implant site can happen. If any of these symptoms persist or worsen, it's crucial to consult your doctor promptly for further evaluation and management.
