Thanks for the query
Nexplanon is a small, flexible, plastic implant that is inserted under the skin of the upper arm to provide contraception for three years.
It can cause irregular periods includin prolonged periods in people. If it has continued for two weeks u have to see a doctor and also check ur hb levels.

Swelling of feet and ankles need not be related to the implants, please see a phycisian for it
