Long-Acting Reversible Contraception

Some of the most effective forms of birth control are also long-lasting and completely reversible so you can become pregnant when you're ready


We make highly effective and long-lasting forms of birth control affordable for everyone!

Some of the most effective forms of birth control are long-acting, reversible contraceptives known as LARCs.They includethe copper ParaGard IUD and the hormonal Mirena IUD and the hormonal contraceptive implant. These methods can prevent unwanted pregnancy up to 20 times better than birth control pills, patches and vaginal rings.

A LARC may be right for you. They are a great option for women who may want to become pregnant in the future, but only after achieving a goal like finishing school or starting a career. Despite popular misconceptions, LARCs are safe and highly effective for women who have never been pregnant. They are also a good option for women who've completed their families or who want to delay their next pregnancy for several years.

Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region is able to offer these methods at no cost to the patient. Call us at 901-725-1717, or make an appointment online to come in for counseling to find out if a LARC method is right for you! Please bring your insurance card or information with you. If you do not have insurance, please bring proof of your income.
