Tax included.

A subdermal implant is a type of contraception that is long-lasting, highly effective, and reversible. It consists of a thin plastic rod which is injected and implanted beneath the skin of the forearm. It contains 68mg of etonogestrel with a release rate of approximately 60-70 micrograms per day in week 5-6, decreases to 35-45 micrograms at the end of the first year, 30-40 micrograms at the end of the second year until 25-30 at the end of the third year.

Please note: This procedure may only be purchased after proper endorsement from an OBGYN. Book a consultation with a Kindred OBGYN today to know more about your birth control options.

A recent copy of your doctor's prescription is required before checking out.

Patients are advised not to do any strenuous activities the night before the procedure and to avoid applying lotions or harsh chemicals on the underside of the forearm (left hand or non-dominant hand). Prescribed pain relievers will be given once at the clinic.

Prior to the procedure, doctors will need the patient’s medical history to discuss further information about the contraceptive method and assess whether a subdermal implant is suitable for the patient. A Kindred OBGYN will administer anesthesia on the arm area and an applicator will be used to insert the implant under the skin.

The procedure is usually painless after induction of anesthesia. Since Implanon is thin and flexible it should be negligible after 7 days. An arm bandage will be applied after the procedure until day 5. Patients are advised to keep the wound clean and dry until it heals. Back-up contraception or condoms are recommended for the first 7 days.
An Implanon intradermal implant is for women of reproductive age, without history of blood clots, cancer, liver disease, or allergy to the hormone progestin. This type of contraception is best for patients who cannot adhere to a strict routine and need a long acting reversible contraceptive.
