Implant (Nexplanon)Ali, 17, implant
"It was super fast, super easy."
Feb 08, 2017
Ali didn’t love her experience with the pill, so after talking with her health care provider, she decided to try the long-lasting Nexplanon implant instead. Now, she can’t find anything she doesn’t like about her birth control.
Ali likes that the implant isn’t noticeable but she can still feel for it in her arm to know it’s working. The insertion procedure was quick and easy with just a little soreness for a few days after. Best of all? Ali loves the sense of control over her own body she’s gotten from finding the right method for her.
