"Can bladder wreck interact with the Nexplanon implant?"
I have the implant
When ever you are taking any herbal medication, it is important to discuss this with the prescribing physician. Unfortunately, anything more than general information is difficult to give over the internet, as I do not have full access to your medical history including the other medications that you may be taking. For me to advise more information about which medications to take and whether or not they would be safe would not be prudent. Fortunately, the doctor who has performed the Nexplanon implant should be able to help you answer this question with a simple phone call. Additionally, there may be some information that came with the implant itself that can be helpful to understand what the risks and benefits are, as well as some of the potential interactions. Finally, speaking with the manufacturer of the implant can also be beneficial, as they may be able to make discrete suggestions or answers that can guide you and your doctor. Please speak with your doctor about this question, and please use backup contraception whenever you are using herbals or other medications that could interact with your birth control until you have discussed it with your doctor.
