NEXPLANON

What is it? Nexplanon 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. You can make sure Nexplanon is in place with a simple monthly check. Your healthcare provider can show you how.

Pros

  • Over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy
  • Can last up to 3 years
  • Once Nexplanon is placed by a healthcare provider it is virtually hassle-free without the daily or weekly worries of remembering to use a birth control method
  • Completely reversible and can be removed by your OB/GYN at any time if you change your mind, so you can try to get pregnant right away
  • Safe for women who are breastfeeding or have already had children.
  • Most women experience fewer, lighter periods
  • May improve PMS, depression, and symptoms of endometriosis

Cons

  •  Nexplanon does not protect against STDs or HIV /AIDS.
  •  Irregular bleeding may occur, especially in the first 6-12 months.
