What's Is LARC?

LARC stands for “Long-Acting Reversible Contraception,” and it’s a super reliable way to prevent pregnancy for several years. The most common types are contraceptive implants and hormonal or copper IUDs. These methods require less frequent replacement compared to other options.

Contraceptive Implants: These are tiny plastic sticks inserted under the skin of the upper arm. They release a steady dose of progestin hormone, which prevents the ovaries from releasing eggs. This can lead to changes in periods. The implant lasts for about three years and is super effective, with a 99% success rate in preventing pregnancy. It’s safe to use while breastfeeding and can even be inserted right after giving birth.
