Implantable contraception is a birth control implant used by many women as a method of contraception which involves a minor procedure. The implant is a flexible plastic rod, around 4cm long and 2mm in diameter, that is inserted under the skin of the inner side of the upper arm. It provides contraception for up to 3 years.
We have several GPs trained in implantable contraception. Please call the clinic for more information.
An initial appointment with your doctor should be made to discuss all contraceptive options available to you before deciding upon an implantable contraceptive option. Should you and your doctor decide that implantable contraception is the most appropriate form of contraception for you; your doctor will write you a prescription for the device. You will then need to collect the device from your local pharmacy.
When making an appointment for the Implanon insertion at our clinic, please ensure you alert reception so they can allocate the appropriate amount of time for your appointment.
