About Contraceptive Implant

Contraceptive Implant

The contraceptive implant is a 40mm flexible tube inserted beneath the skin of a woman's upper arm, in order to prevent pregnancy by inhibiting the normal maturation and release of eggs.

The implant works by releasing progestogen into the bloodstream which increases the thickness of mucus in the cervix, and makes the uterus lining thinner.

The implant is inserted by a doctor and lasts up to 3 years before needing to be replaced. Whilst the implant protects against pregnancy, it does not protects against STIs.

Recommended for

The contraceptive implant is an option for any woman that wants a long-term, reversible contraceptive method.

The contraceptive implant is especially appropriate for women that are not suited to contraception which relies on estrogen, or women who do not want to take the pill each day.
