An effective, long-acting and reversible method of family planning
We provide the Jadelle implant, which is two small flexible rods that sit in your upper arm and prevent pregnancy.
A trained professional inserts the implant under the skin of your upper arm. Your arm is numbed before insertion so it is generally not painful. Once inserted the implant does not move around your body. It stays where it is inserted. You can feel it under the skin. After insertion you will need to rest your arm for four days, but then you can use your arm as normal.
The implant provides protection from unplanned pregnancies for up to five years, and can be removed whenever you are ready. Long-acting methods all have the advantage that, once in place, you don’t need to think about them until they need replacing and none of them interrupt sex.
Over 99%. If one hundred women used the implant for a year, then 99 women would not fall pregnant during that time.
