Advantages and Disadvantages of the Contraceptive Implant

Advantages of Contraceptive Implants:

1) You will not get pregnant for 9 months after you have inserted the implant.

(You need to use it up completely before then).

2) The effectiveness of the device is 100% effective.

There are no failures in using this method.

3) There is no risk of side effects such as bleeding or spotting during your period.

4) You can use it immediately after your doctor has removed the old one.

You don’t need to wait for it to “kick in.”

5) There are no fertility risks.

6) You will not need to remember to take a pill every day.

Disadvantages of the contraceptive implant:

1) They are relatively expensive, costing around $500 dollars on average.

2) It is a little bigger than your average birth control pill and a little more invasive to have a procedure done.

3) You need to go back to the doctor for removal.

They do this in the same office where they put the implant in.

4) The biggest disadvantage is that it is highly effective.

Only 1 in every 100 women will get pregnant in a year of use. In comparison, the male sterilization operation is only slightly less effective, with 1 in 200 men getting miscarrages at the same rate.

The contraceptive implant is a good choice for most women and men who do not wish to have any more children.
