Pharmacological information of Atonogestrel contraceptive implant

Medication Information: The contraceptive implant is ethonogestrel (Nex Planon), a progesterone. Progesterone is a female sex hormone that is naturally produced by the ovaries. Implants containing autonogestrel have a long-lasting, effective and convenient contraceptive. An implant is a small, flexible tube that is placed under the surface of the skin (under the arm) and gently releases autonogestrel into the bloodstream. Each implant provides contraception for three months. The drug is marketed in the UK under the name Nexplanone.

Autonogestrel (Nex Planon) mainly works by stopping ovulation (release of an egg from the ovary). It also changes the lining of the uterus so that the egg cannot attach to it, even if the egg is fertile, it cannot attach to the wall of the uterus, so pregnancy does not occur. In addition, the thickening of the mucus made by the cervix (plug) exerts its own changes. This makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus through the cervix and fertilize the egg, thus preventing pregnancy.
