The Contraceptive Implant is a small, white plastic rod that is inserted under the skin of the inner, upper arm in a minor surgical procedure. Once inserted it releases small amounts of progesterone hormone which stops the ovaries from releasing eggs.
This form of contraception is over 99.9% effective and lasts for three years.
If you choose to have an Contraceptive Implant we can insert it during your procedure.
Woman who shouldn’t use the Contraceptive Implant are;
- Those with breast cancer or reproductive organ cancers
- Those with Deep Venous Thrombosis
- Those with liver disease
- Those with abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Those who experience major bruising problems
- Some medications can also interfere with the effectiveness of the Contraceptive Implant
