THE IMPLANT   This implant is a small rod which is inserted into the upper arm of a woman and will release the hormone progestogen. To get it fitted you will need to see a nurse who will then numb your arm and insert the implant through a small incision. Once in place it works for 3 years and so once inserted nothing else needs to be done. It will prevent the release of an egg and make cervical mucus thicker to make it harder for sperm to get through. After 3 years it should be removed or replaced as the hormone levels will run out and so it will stop working. To get it removed simply go back to your doctor. It is around 99-100% effective but does not protect against STIs/STD's.  

The implant can make your periods stop or become irregular
