NEXPLANON

What is it?
Nexplanon (Implant)
is an levonorgestrel-releasing implant that provides over 99% effective birth control for up to three years. Once in place, it provides continuous, highly effective birth control.

How does it work?
Nexplanon is a small (about the size of a matchstick) thin flexible plastic single-rod implant that is placed under the skin in the upper inner arm by a health care provider. It works by releasing the hormone progestin into the uterus and preventing sperm from traveling to the cervix.
