Frequently asked questions about etonogestrel (Implanon)

Etonogestrel is the active ingredient in Implanon, a brand-name birth control device used to prevent pregnancy. This specific form of contraception is administered via a small, flexible plastic rod (about the size of a match) inserted into the upper arm's skin.

It is important to note that while contraceptives such as etonogestrel offer significant benefits, they do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Talk to your doctor about your health history and any medication you are currently taking before you receive a birth control implant.

An etonogestrel implant is primarily prescribed as a form of birth control used to prevent pregnancies.

It is important to note that while contraceptives such as etonogestrel offer significant benefits, they do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Rubber condoms and abstinence are the best methods available for protection against these infections.

Talk to your doctor about your health history and any medication you are currently taking before you receive a birth control implant.

Etonogestrel is administered into the body via a small plastic rod that is inserted into the upper arm. This rod releases a form of progestin hormone – a natural hormone released by the ovaries to control menstruation and other functions of the reproductive system. By releasing progestin into the body, etonogestrel stops a woman’s egg from fully developing in the uterus. This means that the egg is unable to be fertilized by sperm, which prevents pregnancy. Etonogestrel also changes the cervical mucus in the lining of the uterus, which can make it considerably more difficult for sperm to fertilize an egg.

You may experience some mild side effects after an etonogestrel (Implanon) implantation. Talk to your doctor if these reactions become severe, or do not go away within a few days.

Common side effects reported after receiving an etonogestrel implant include:

  • Changes in menstrual patterns
  • Change in mood
  • Breast tenderness
  • Weight changes
  • Acne

This is not a complete list of adverse reactions. Seek medical attention right away if you experience breathing problems, changes in blood pressure, irritation at the injection site, fever symptoms, dark brown urine, infection at the injection sites, or other more severe symptoms after etonogestrel is implanted into your arm.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before receiving an etonogestrel implantation. Etonogestrel can interact with other forms of medication, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with this medication.

Etonogestrel is administered as an implant that is inserted under the skin of your upper arm. In most cases, doctors elect to perform this procedure between the first and fifth day of your menstrual period.

Etonogestrel lasts for 3 years. After this time, its effects will wear off and the implant requires removal. Do not leave etonogestrel implanted under your skin for longer than 3 years. Once this 3 year period is over, it is important to note that the implant is no longer working as birth control and you will begin to be fertile again.

Etonogestrel can be removed at any time by your health care provider. Do not attempt to remove this device on your own.

Etonogestrel is currently only available via prescription under the brand-name Implanon. There is no generic or over-the-counter version of Implanon. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed health care provider.
