Why choose an IUD or implant?
Implants and IUDs are hassle-free, highly effective and reversible ways to prevent pregnancy. A health care provider can insert a LARC in one short, routine office visit. After that, there’s no maintenance until you’re ready to have it removed or time runs out—that’s 3 years for the implant and up to 12 years for the IUD. These birth control methods are safe, effective and pretty much forgettable.
Folks who have them love them!
Ready for love? People who have IUDs and implants are the most likely birth control users to say they love their birth control. That’s important! You deserve to be happy, safe and comfortable in your pursuit of baby-free sexy time. Also, almost 90% of IUD and implant users stick with their birth control, compared to only 57% of people who use other types. That means a lower risk for “oops” later, too!
