I have the nexplanon implant, and I was proscribed augmentin for an ear infection. Do I need to use back up birth control?

Thanks for posting your query.
Taking augmentin only for 5-7 days for an ear infection usually does not affect the efficacy of the nexplanon implant. Any back up birth control is not required.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
