Could having a nexplanon implant affect your discharge

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you dealt with the discharge? Have you experienced this in the past?

For about two weeks. The consistency changes. It doesn’t have an odor though.

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?

I have not had a pap test. In the past I have had cysts on my ovaries.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No that is all

Dear *****ient, nexplanon can modify the period and the bleeding, in a small portion of women it generates effects such as prolonged bleeding, absence of bleeding, more painful bleeding, or changes in the vaginal flora that generate discharges and changes in vaginal mucus.....
This type of alteration is evident in the first 6 months of its use, in your case I suggest to go to a consultation to evaluate the characteristics of the discharge, since there are other factors such as infections and hormonal alterations that can generate this type of discharge.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
