The contraceptive implant is a small device inserted into the upper arm which releases Progestogen into the bloodstream. This has been shown to be more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy for up to 3 years. A consultation with a Midland Health GP will help to answer any questions or talk through any concerns you may be having.

Advantages –

  • Fertility should return to normal as soon as the implant is removed.
  • The implant is a good option for women who have difficulty remembering to take the contraceptive pill or can’t tolerate oestrogen-based options.
  • The implant is safe to use while you are breastfeeding.
  • The implant can help to reduce heavy or painful periods.

Disadvantages –

  • The implant does not protect against sexually transmitted infection, so you may still need to use condoms.
  • A small procedure is necessary to have the implant fitted or removed.
  • The implant may cause temporary side-effects in the first few months including headaches, nausea, breast tenderness and mood swings.
  • The implant may cause periods to become irregular or stop altogether.
  • Acne can sometimes become worse through the implant.
