Nexplanon, up to 3 years of continuous pregnancy prevention


NEXPLANON is one of the most effective birth control options available. Once it's in your arm, NEXPLANON works to prevent pregnancy with a continuous release of progestin, one of the hormones found in birth control pills. This keeps the egg from being released from the ovaries and prevents sperm from reaching the egg.


NEXPLANON is a small, soft, and flexible birth control implant - it's just 4 centimeters in length. Your health care provider places it discreetly under the skin on the inside of your upper arm. This means it's hidden from view. NEXPLANON provides up to 3 years of continuous pregnancy prevention. That means no more daily, weekly, or monthly dosing routine.


Once inserted, NEXPLANON is over 99% effective, just like the pill. But there's a difference - with NEXPLANON, you don't have to remember to take it every day.
