The implant is a long-lasting, but reversible method of contraception. It has a contraceptive efficacy of 99.95% and a single implant can last up to 5 years.
It is a small metal device, which is placed under the skin of the arm. It works thanks to the hormonal release of gestagens that will inhibit ovulation. It is true that women can witness changes in the amount and duration of their periods, there are even women who will not have menstruation during its use.
Once it is removed, the contraceptive effect disappears quickly and the ovulatory cycles will continue in a normal way, so it does not affect fertility at all.
