So I know that some antibiotics cancel out certain birth controls like the Pill and depo(in some cases). But do they effect Nexplanon?

I have this and I was on antibiotics for about a month last month and I asked the doctor and she said it varies with different antibiotics, but the one she put me on didn't affect my BC. <---- her words.

I trusted her and hubs and I had sex a couple times and no baby. So I'm guessing she was right.

I asked the pharmacist last time i got antibiotics, he said no, but it may have just been that one. It was a strong one though

I had the Implanon for 3 years and took antibiotics several times with no problem. My OB told me that there are only a few that interact with Implanon and they aren't commonly prescribed. I'd either call and ask the nurse or use back-up
