Contraceptive implant

Pregnancy prevention for up to 5 years, remove at any time

An effective, long-acting and reversible method of contraception
The contraceptive implant is a small, plastic rod (or sometimes 2 rods) that is put into the upper arm, preventing pregnancy for 3 to 5 years.

The implant is a long-acting method of contraception. Long-acting methods of contraception all have the advantage that, once in place, you don’t need to think about them until they need replacing and none of them interrupt sex.

At Reproductive Health Service, we recommend these types of contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancies as they are over 99% effective when used properly.
