The contraceptive implant is a small flexible plastic rod that’s placed under the skin in your upper arm by a doctor or nurse. It releases the hormone progestogen gradually into your bloodstream and is effective for 3 years. It's one of the most effective forms of contraception out there and is great if you find it difficult to remember to take the pill every day.
