Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format, accompanied by an easy to read chart, to educate people about the progestin implant, known by brand names such as Nexplanon. It explains how the progestin implant works, how it is inserted and removed by a medical provider, and getting pregnant after removal. It discusses benefits and side effects, and cost. The document clarifies that the progestin implant does not protect from Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or HIV, and advises condom use.
