Other methods of contraception are often influenced by user compliance, i.e. the typical use rate is lower than the theory. Implanon is a rod that is completely uns affected by this factor, only 1 implant and a single implant and women who have finished implanting the rod do not need to do anything more.

Of course, if leaving the implant past the recommended time for implanon is 3 years, then the contraceptive effect will no longer be high.

Implanon is aimed at women who have difficulty taking contraceptive pills or because they often forget to take them. This is also a good method for those who do not tolerate tablets (containing oestrogene and progesteron), people with cardiovascular disease, smoking or do not want to apply the method of placing.
