Contraceptive Implants After Childbirth

Implants are just one form of dispensing hormones in a slow, safe way through tubes placed under the skin. These can be used from three weeks after the birth. These last for 3 years so the choice to use this system must be well thought out. The implant is actually a thin, flexible rod that is placed by a doctor under the skin in the upper arm.

Contraceptive implants provide Progestin, so they do not interfere with breastfeeding. Unlike oral pills that are Progestin-only, with the implants there is no risk of not taking the dosage on time, a factor that increases the risk of failure, because the hormones are dispensed slowly and consistently.
