Progestin Implant User Guide

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format to educate people about how to use the progestin implant. It explains how the progestin implant works, what to do after it is inserted, when it will start to work, how long it will last, and removal. It discusses how the implant causes periods to change, possible side effects, and when to see your health care provider. The document clarifies that the progestin implant does not protect from Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or HIV, and advises condom use.
