What are Contraceptive Implants? | Contraceptive Implants Singapore
The contraceptive implant (Implanon/Nexplanon) is a form of long-term, reversible hormonal birth control. It is a small, thin and flexible plastic rod about the size of a matchstick, which is inserted discreetly beneath the skin of the inner, upper arm.
It contains a progestin hormone called etonorgestrel, which is released into your body slowly. The contraceptive implant protects against unplanned pregnancies for up to 3 years.
