implanon NXT 68mg implant

UGX 24,000

Implanon NXT is a contraceptive implant preloaded in a disposable applicator. The implant contains 68 mg of the active substance etonogestrel. Etonogestrel is a synthetic female hormone resembling progesterone. A small amount of the hormone etonogestrel is continuously released into the bloodstream for three years. The rod itself is made of ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer, a plastic that will not dissolve in the body. It also contains small amounts of barium sulfate (which renders it visible under X-ray) and magnesium stearate.


How does Implanon NXT work?

Implanon NXT is used to prevent pregnancy.
Implanon NXT is placed directly under the skin at the inner side of the non-dominant upper arm.
Implanon NXT prevents pregnancy in two ways:
It prevents the release of an egg cell from the ovaries (ovulation)
It causes changes to cervical mucus that makes it difficult for sperm to enter the womb.
As a result, Implanon NXT protects you against pregnancy for a period of three years, but if you are overweight the doctor may advise you to replace the implant earlier. Implanon NXT is one of several means of preventing pregnancy. Another frequently used birth control method is the combined Pill. Implanon NXT differs from combined Pills in that it contains no oestrogen and you do not have to remember to take a pill every day.
Implanon NXT has several important advantages:
It is one of the most reliable birth control methods (over 99% effective).
It does not interfere with having sex.
Once you stop using it you can expect your previous fertility to return quickly.
