Birth Control Implant
Common Brand(s): Nexplanon
Prescription Required: Yes
Lasts Up To 5 Years
The Birth Control Implant is a tiny, thin rod that releases hormones into the female body to prevent pregnancy. A doctor inserts the tiny implant under the skin of the female’s upper arm. This implant can last up to 5 years, but is not permanent and needs to be replaced.
It is important to use barrier contraceptives like condoms while using this birth control method as it doesn’t protect against STDs nor guarantees pregnancy prevention!
