Is it common to have acne while on the implant Nexplanon?

Acne is definitely one of the known side effects of Nexplanon. Typically, this acne is mild and can be controlled by starting and committing to a good topical anti-acne treatment system for your skin. If, after 2-3 months of topical treatments, you do not see sufficient improvement, you may need to consider removal of the implant and switching to another contraceptive option.
