BACKGROUND: Since the internet has become an important source of contraceptive information with as the second most visited site, we analysed contraceptive implant YouTube videos for content and clinical accuracy. METHODS: Using the terms 'contraceptive implant', 'Nexplanon' and 'Implanon', the top 20 results on YouTube by relevance and view count were identified. After excluding duplicates, single-rod implant videos in English were included. Videos were classified as providing a professional or patient perspective...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Adolescents face barriers to accessing youth-friendly family planning services, specifically long-acting reversible contraception (LARC). School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) can provide youth-friendly care. A quality improvement (QI) project was undertaken to assess quality of care before, during and after LARC services at three SBHCs, and to identify specific strategies for improving these LARC services. METHODS: We interviewed 18 female adolescents who received LARC services...

A 19-year-old patient presented to the clinic, and we inserted a single rod subdermal etonogestrel implant (Nexplanon ®), which subsequently migrated to the ipsilateral axilla. Distant Nexplanon® migration is a rare serious complication that should be considered when a device is nonpalpable. Management options are discussed.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to assess the incidence of adverse effects (AE) reported with etonogestrel contraceptive implant in France (Implanon(®) and Nexplanon(®)). MATERIALS AND METHODS: All cases of AE or unintended pregnancies reported to health authorities or to the firm were analyzed. RESULTS: During 10 years, 5433 AE and 789 unintended pregnancies were reported. Only 388 (7 %) were serious. There were 1137 reports of difficulties to remove, failure to locate or migration, 430 of insertion difficulties and 203 of deformation or expulsion of the implant...

BACKGROUND: Studies have not found that hormonal contraceptive implants adversely affect breastfeeding, but theoretical concerns exist. METHODS: We reported a case of reduced weight gain in an exclusively breastfed infant in association with placement of (ENG)-releasing contraceptive implant (Nexplanon) to the FDA Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS). We further queried reports to FAERS and reviewed published studies of the ENG implant during breastfeeding. RESULTS: A breastfeeding mother received an ENG implant at 4 weeks postpartum...

BACKGROUND: Etonogestrel (ENG) implants (Implanon(®)/Nexplanon(®)/Implanon NXT(®)) are employed as contraception in early postpartum patients. Follow-up is often not conducted by the hospital prescriber. Little is known about duration of lochia, in a modern setting, and even less is known about the effect of ENG implants on lochia. AIMS: To determine if early postpartum (pre-discharge) insertion of Implanon for contraception was associated with a significant difference in duration of lochia...

BACKGROUND: To provide standardised information about the contraceptive implant (Nexplanon(®)), a digital video disc (DVD) was developed for use within a sexual and reproductive health (SRH) service in Edinburgh. The aim was to determine if the accuracy of information recalled after watching a DVD was comparable to that following a face-to-face consultation, and if patients found the use of a DVD acceptable. METHODS: Fifty women attending an SRH service abortion clinic considering using Nexplanon for the first time agreed to be randomised to receive information about the implant either by (a) a DVD (n=35) developed using information taken from Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare guidance or (b) a face-to-face consultation (n=15)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the menstrual profile in users of the etonogestrel (ENG)-releasing implant (Nexplanon®) and the possible correlation with anthropometric variables. METHODS: Ninety-two healthy women, desiring long-term contraception with the ENG implant were enrolled in a prospective observational study. Anthropometric variables were measured at baseline and after 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. Patients recorded daily the occurrence of any bleeding or spotting...

Nexplanon (Schering-Plough Limited/Merck Sharp & Dohme Limited (MSD)) is a long active reversible contraceptive method that provides effective contraception for 3 years. It consists of a single, flexible, rod-shaped implant, containing 68 mg etonogestrel. It is 4 cm long, consists of an ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer, a non-absorbable material, and also contains 15 mg of barium sulfate, which makes it visible by X-ray. We describe a case of a 39-year-old woman who experienced a local reaction to the barium sulfate in Nexplanon...

BACKGROUND: Since the late 1990s, the British government has launched major strategies to address high teenage pregnancy and abortion rates in England. These have focused in part on improving access to contraception through national campaigns. This study assessed teenage pregnancy and abortion rate trends since 1998 and possible associations with usage of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). METHODS: Teenage conception rates and age-specific abortion rates were obtained from the Office for National Statistics and the Department of Health...

Nexplanon® is an etonogestrel implant with a long-acting contraceptive effect. Although several studies underlined its safety profile, its implant can rarely lead to moderate or severe adverse event. Here, we presented a case of delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction against Nexplanon® that resolved after its removal.

Despite modifications to avoid deep insertions, clinical experience with Nexplanon demonstrates that deep insertions still occur. We present a case of a Nexplanon found in the biceps muscle that was successfully removed with a small incision using a combination of ultrasound and fluoroscopy guidance by interventional radiologists.

The aim of the study was to determine the impact of etonogestrel (ENG)-implant used for contraceptive purpose on Quality of life (QoL) and on sexual function (FSF) of healthy Italian women. The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire and the Short Form-36 (SF-36) validated questionnaire were administered at baseline, 3 and 6 months after insertion of Nexplanon. The implant seems to have a positive impact on QoL after the first three months of therapy. Users showed an improved general health status and physical role status...

BACKGROUND AND METHODOLOGY: Information is presented on the management of women referred to a sexual health service during a 1-year period for management of a non-palpable contraceptive implant or of a palpable implant considered unsuitable for routine removal. RESULTS: Fifty-two women were referred. Thirty-four implants were non-palpable and their depth on ultrasound ranged from 2.7 to 12mm. Seventeen were fully or partly palpable and their depth ranged from 3mm or less (16 cases) to 5...
