What is a birth control implant?

A birth control or contraceptive implant is a long acting birth control method used by women around the world to delay or prevent pregnancy.

 

It is a flexible rod about 4cm (roughly the size of a matchstick) which is inserted just under the skin of your upper arm by a trained healthcare provider.

How effective is the implant?

Implants are 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.*

The implant is effective for up to 3 years. However, it can be removed by a trained healthcare provider at any point during that time.
