Does anyone know how levonelle can in anyway effect the Nexplanon implant?

If you have the implant, you shouldn't need any other form of contraception - it is staggeringly reliable.

If you have only just got the implant, talk to whoever you got it from or a pharmacist. Levonelle will be a significant additional dose of progesterone but it won't stop the implant working.

I got the implant, a few days before in the same week I took the levonelle pill and was told to mention it to my doctor when getting the implant because one type of implant could be affected by it and the implant would have to be postponed. However I forgot to mention this on the day and i was just curious to find out if levonelle efecting nexplanon but as they are both progesterone I thought it seemed unlikely
