Abstract

Contraceptive implants are safe, highly effective, and long-term methods of contraception that are widely applicable to any reproductive-aged woman. Implants require minimal user compliance and are cost-effective. The new single-rod system simplifies insertion and removal, making implants more accessible for both providers and patients. Specifically, progestin-only implants are safe options for various women including adolescents, postpartum, breast-feeding, those who are medically complicated, or those who have contraindications to or intolerance of estrogen-containing contraceptives.
