Nexplanon expiring – okay to leave it in? : birthcontrol


Hi friends! My nexplanon implant is expiring in a couple of weeks. I know I’ll need to use another form of BC and that I’ll need to have it removed eventually, BUT – does anyone know if it’s harmful or dangerous to leave the inactive device in? I’ve asked my doctor’s office and was told to “contact family medicine for removal” and no response to clarification that my question wasn’t about removal. I’m trying to avoid going to the doctor’s if unecessary so – is it harmful to leave an inactive/expired Nexplanon in my arm until quarantine measures are relaxed?
