The Implant (Nexplanon)

Nexplanon is a hormone-releasing birth control implant for use by those who wish to prevent pregnancy for up to 3 years. The implant is a flexible plastic rod about the size of a matchstick that contains a progestin hormone called etonogestrel. The implant gets inserted just under the skin of the inner side of your upper arm.  Nexplanon does not contain estrogen.
