Contraception – part 2

How NOT to get Pregnant

Implant (Jadelle)

What is it?
The implant contraceptive is a matchstick-sized rod that is inserted into your upper arm, providing three to five years of pregnancy prevention.
How does it work?
The rod releases hormones into the body that stops ovulation and thickens the cervical mucous to prevent the sperm from entering the uterus. The insertion/removal of the rod may be slightly uncomfortable, and must be done by a trained healthcare professional.

tickImportant!
Some people can experience side effects from the hormones, such as nausea, tender breasts, dizziness, headaches and mood changes. If you wish to use this method of contraception, it is recommended that you try taking the oral contraceptive pill first for several months to see if you are susceptible to the hormonal side effects. If you feel fine taking the contraceptive pill, the insertion method might be a good fit for you. Note: the insertion method does NOT prevent sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.

Insertion (IUD, Copper T, Loop)

What is it?
The insertion contraceptive – otherwise known as an IUD (intrauterine device), Copper T or the Loop – is a small T-shaped device inserted into the uterus.
How does it work?
The device primarily works by causing a chemical change that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. Once inserted, the device can stay inside you for up to ten years. The IUD can be removed at any time by a Doctor. Then pregnancy is possible immediately thereafter.

tickImportant!
The device must be inserted or removed by a trained healthcare professional. It is important that the device be removed after the recommended amount of time.
