*NEXPLANON® must be removed by the end of the third year and may be replaced with a new NEXPLANON®. It is not known if NEXPLANON® is as effective in very overweight women because studies did not include many overweight women. Tell your healthcare provider about any medicines you are taking, or intend to take, including over-the-counter medicines, herbal remedies, and prescription medicines. Certain medicines may make NEXPLANON® less effective and you may need to use a barrier method of contraception as backup.
