I am considering getting the implant. Does it cause problems to have something in my body for a long time?
updated almost 3 years ago

All the birth control devices have been rigorously tested and are FDA-approved for long-term use. And because it’s designed to be there for a long time, you can pretty much just forget about the implant for up to 4 years.

Still not working?

If you’re still bothered by the thought of having a device inside of you, there are plenty of other options.

By not liking the feeling of “something in my body” we assume you’re talking about a device and not a drug, right? If so, what about the shot, the pill, or the patch?

Try a different method
