Product Information

This long-acting contraceptive is an implant that slowly releases etonogestrel, a form of progestin hormone, and is inserted beneath the skin on the arm. The hormone helps prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg and helps inhibit sperm from reaching the egg, reducing the chance of pregnancy with more than 99% effectiveness. The device can help reduce the chance of unwanted pregnancy for three years but can be removed at any time.
