Abigail, 19, implant

It took about 15 minutes at the most.

Abigail used to be on the pill, but as her life got busier, it got more difficult to remember to take it at the same time every day. That’s when she decided to go for the implant—a method that’s extremely effective and lasts for up to 5 years.

The implant is making it possible for Abigail to finish school and be financially and emotionally ready before she has kids. Abigail also knows that the implant doesn’t protect against STIs, so she and her boyfriend use condoms too.
