What it is:
This contraceptive skin implant (Implanon) is a plastic rod the size of a matchstick. It contains only the hormone etonogestrel (a type of progestin) and is inserted underneath the woman's skin on the inside of the upper arm. This is done by a licensed health-care provider and takes only a few minutes.
What it does:
Once implanted, the rod releases a hormone into your body. Much like any other hormonal form of contraception (like the Pill), it stops the ovaries from releasing an egg each month. One rod prevents pregnancies for up to three years.
