Contraceptive Implant

The contraceptive implant is one of the most effective forms of contraception (over 99%). It lasts for 3 years, and can be taken out at any time, providing quickly reversible fertility for those wishing to be pregnant.

The implant is a soft piece of plastic that’s put in under the skin of the arm by a highly trained implant specialist.

It contains one hormone (a progestogen), which is very similar to one of the body’s own hormones.

Here at REMEDI HEALTH in Winchester we can advise on all contraception options and fit and remove implants.

About The Procedure

A contraceptive implant fitting or replacement is a straightforward procedure which rarely poses complications. It usually takes a few minutes and does not require any stitches.

We will begin by discussing any questions and concerns that you may have about the implant, the procedure and rule out pregnancy before we proceed (in the same appointment) with the fitting/replacement.

Once we have completed the consultation element of the appointment, we will then ask you to lie down on the couch and roll up your sleeve (so please do wear something loose and comfortable). After cleaning the area of your arm where the implant is to be fitted/replaced with an antiseptic wipe, we will administer a local anaesthetic injection.

Once the area is numb, we will proceed to insert the implant under the skin on the inner side of your upper arm. We will then check that the implant can be felt in your arm and show you how to feel it is in place.

If we are also replacing your implant, we first make a tiny cut in your skin (after local anaesthetic has numbed the area) and gently pull the old contraceptive implant out.

Once the implant has been fitted/replaced, the area will be cleaned and a bandage applied (to be kept clean and dry for 24-48 hours).

We can also provide a removal-only service.
