Now offering same day appointments to get an implant!
Have a free lunch hour? Head over to carafem for a 5min procedure and stay protected for up to 3 years.
What is it?
Implants are a form of birth control that keeps you protected up to 3 years without having to worry about any daily routine. It’s a great option for women looking for high effective, low hassle contraception.
The birth control implant, Nexplanon, is a small rod (only 4cm) that is inserted just under your skin into your upper arm at carafem, so when you leave, you have a birth control that is super effective and not visible.
How does it work?
The implant continuously releases a hormone, progestin (also found in birth control pills), keeping the eggs from being released from the ovaries.
How effective is it?
This is one of the most effective methods of birth control you can get!
It is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy for 3 years, but is easily taken out so you can return to fertility when you’re ready.
