Implanon

Implanon is a contraceptive device that can be suitable for some women.

It is a small plastic rod containing a progesterone medication that is inserted under the skin of the arm under local anaesthetic. It can be kept in place for up to 3 years and is useful for women who may have trouble remembering to take tablets or for whom oestrogen-based contraceptive medications do not suit.

Implanon insertions can be easily done in the practice, if you are interested please make an appointment with one of the doctors to discuss it.
