What is Nexplanon®
Nexplanon® a progestogen-only subdermal implant that has now replaced the contraceptive implant, Implanon®. Nexplanon and Implanon are bioequivalent (i.e. they both contain 68 mg etonogestrel and they have the same release rate and 3-year duration of action). The main differences are that Nexplanon is radio-opaque and has a different application device and insertion technique.

We are only able to accommodate 30 providers for the workshop, so please complete following form to register as soon as possible. You may submit online at this link or return by email to aflanigan@gafp.org or by fax to 404-321-7450.
