IUDs and Implants are one of the most effective birth control methods out there.

Our providers are experts in the full range of birth control options. We can help you choose the method that is uniquely suited to your life and needs.

TYPES OF IUDs AND IMPLANTS

Copper IUD

The Copper IUD doesn’t have hormones. It’s wrapped in a tiny bit of copper, and it protects you from pregnancy for up to 12 years.

Hormonal IUDs

Hormonal IUDs use the hormone progestin to prevent pregnancy. Depending on which one you choose it can last from 3-6 years. 

Implants

The birth control implant (AKA Nexplanon) is a tiny, thin rod about the size of a matchstick. It can last up to 4 years.
