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.

Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) are FREE at Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region.

What are LARCs?

An IUD (intrauterine device) is a tiny device that's inserted in your uterus to prevent pregnancy. An implant is a matchstick-sized rod that is inserted in the arm to prevent pregnancy. These options are long-term, reversible, and the most effective birth control methods available. 

What kind of IUDs does PPGMR offer?

We offer two types of IUDs: copper and hormonal. We also offer the implant

How do I know if I should get one?

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. 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.

How much does it cost?

Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region is able to offer these methods at no cost to you. Call us at 901-725-1717, or make an appointment online for counseling. Please bring your insurance card or information with you. If these methods are not right for you, we offer other affordable birth control options.
