Am I still ovulating on Nexplanon?

Asked by LeavesNoTrace (2532 points ) 2 months ago

For those not familiar with Nexplanon, here’s what it is.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexplanon

Anyway, I was told that it’s supposed to suppress ovulation but I’m definitely still ovulating even though I don’t always menstruate. Is this possible? I know I’m ovulating because of the prodigious surge in sex drive and the tell-tale ‘eggwhite’ discharge.

Am I sufficiently protected or should I be concerned? I’m not very sexually active but I hope that this contraceptive is performing as advertised. Perhaps it just prevents a fertilized egg from attaching?
