These long-acting reversible birth control methods are great options for women of all ages, including teens.
An IUD is a little t-shaped piece of plastic inserted in your uterus. It will protect you from pregnancy for 3-12 years, depending on the type of IUD.
An implant is a tiny rod that's inserted under the skin of your upper arm. It's so small that most people can't see it in your arm. It will protect you from pregnancy for 3 years.
If you want to get pregnant, you can have an IUD or implant removed at any time.
Thanks to the generosity of public and private funders, PPNYC can make these birth control methods available to many of our clients who qualify for them.
