Intrauterine devices (IUDs) and the implantable contraceptive rod (the implant) are birth control options that offer years of continuous protection. If you’re looking for an easy-to-use alternative to the daily birth control pill, then these options may be a good fit for you.
At Women’s Health Arizona, we provide insertion services for IUDs and the implant. Talk to your provider today to learn about these safe and effective long term birth control options.
Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)
IUDs are T-shaped devices that are inserted into the uterus. After insertion, the IUD provides continuous protection for five to ten years (depending on the type of IUD). IUDs offer hormonal and non-hormonal options as well.
The Implantable Contraceptive
The implantable contraceptive, also known as the implant, provides up to three years of continuous protection. It’s a progestin-only contraceptive in the shape of a small matchstick-sized rod that is inserted under the skin of your upper arm. Once inserted, it’s not visible.
