Birth control implants and removals

If you are looking at methods of contraception, discuss with our Alice Springs doctors about Implanon NXT.

This form of contraception is a small rod that is inserted under the skin of your non-dominant upper arm. The implant continuously releases a small amount of the hormone etonogestrel into the blood stream for up to 3 years before needing to be removed and replaced.

Implanon NXT provides prevention against pregnancy without having to worry about taking a pill every day. While the implant is suitable for women of all reproductive ages, there are some situations where this may not be the best contraception for you. For more information about the Implanon NXT, visit the healthdirect website.
