LARC (Long-Acting Reversible Contraception)

ACOG states "Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods include the intrauterine device (IUD) and the birth control implant. Both methods are highly effective in preventing pregnancy, last for several years, and are easy to use. Both are reversible—if you want to become pregnant or if you want to stop using them, you can have them removed at any time." Each of the below links explain effectiveness, comparisons, benefits, what each device/system is exactly, how each is used along with sides effects and/or risks. Being informed is the best tool to make decisions.  

AFMC, ACOG, CDC and many other organizations support LARC. There is information on each of their websites regarding LARC and we have also attached a brochure, video and links to each of their sites for you to review.
