Too Busy to Remember Birth Control?

A contraceptive implant may be just right for you.

Implants are long-acting, reversible and they're 99% effective. Visit your nearest health center to learn more. 


About Contraceptive Implants

  • The Nexplanon implant is a thin, matchstick-sized plastic rod  that's placed discreetly under the skin on the inside of your upper arm.
  • Contains etonogestrel, a progestin hormone used in some birth control methods
  • Lasts up to 4 years.


Contraceptive implants are highly effective. Fewer than 1 out of 100 women a year become pregnant using these methods.

And, you can have them removed at any time, at a health center, if you're ready to get pregnant. 


Most of our patients pay little or nothing for contraceptive implants.

  • Implants are usually covered in full by insurance. 
  • If you're covered by Medi-cal or Family Pact, there is no cost to you for an implant.
  • If you are paying out-of-pocket, the cost varies. It will be a few hundred dollars. 

Free or reduced-cost services may be available, depending on where you live and your income level.
