• What Is a Birth Control Implant?

    If you struggle with birth control pills, the birth control implant is one option you may wish to discuss with your gynecologist. Watch this video to learn about this type of contraception.

    The birth control implant looks like a small stick and is placed in your arm by your gynecologist or nurse practitioner. The implant contains progesterone and prevents pregnancy for three years. Because there is no estrogen involved and no need for daily pills, it is often a good alternative for women who don’t want to use oral contraceptives.

    For help choosing between different birth control methods, schedule an appointment with a gynecologist serving Washington, DC at Washington Surgi-Clinic . Call (202) 659-9403 for more information about our women’s health services.
