The contraceptive implant, contraception and you
Within the Information for Women area of the Nexplanon UK website you can find out about the contraceptive implant, a long-acting reversible form of hormonal contraception. Specifically, you can find information on:
- What is Nexplanon? Including the size of the contraceptive implant and the hormone it contains.
- How the contraceptive implant works and can prevent pregnancy.
- Links to websites that provide more information on the contraceptive implant and your contraceptive choices.
If you have already been prescribed Nexplanon, please visit the My Nexplanon area of this website.
Remember that choosing a method of contraception that is right for you is a very important decision. You need to be confident that the contraceptive method will protect you from becoming pregnant and you also need to be happy with the way that it works within your body.
