NEXPLANON is one of the most effective birth control options available.
NEXPLANON is a long-term birth control option that lasts for up to 3 years† to prevent pregnancy. NEXPLANON is an implant, not an IUD. It is a small, thin, and flexible contraceptive arm implant that is placed discreetly under the skin of your inner, upper arm by your health care provider. It is over 99% effective*—just as effective as the pill.
You may become pregnant as early as a week after the removal of NEXPLANON.
†NEXPLANON must be removed by the end of the third year and may be replaced by a new implant at the time of removal, if you wish to continue preventing pregnancy with NEXPLANON.
*Less than 1 pregnancy per 100 women who used NEXPLANON for 1 year.
