LARC (Long-Acting Reversible Contraception)

CONTRACEPTIVE IMPLANT

This implant can be placed in a quick and virtually painless procedure in the office. The implant lasts for 3 years and is easily removed when the patient is ready to start a family. The most commonly seen side-effect with either type of LARC is irregular bleeding or spotting. This side-effect usually will resolve within a few weeks or months, however.

Dr. Strobel and her staff also provide education and prescriptions for other types of contraception including oral contraception, the contraceptive ring (NuvaRing), shots (DepoProvera) as well as education on barrier contraception.
