In brief: Nexplanon

Nexplanon and implanon are both subdermal contraceptive implants that last for 3 years and can be placed easily and quickly with just some local anesthetic.
It is well tolerated, very effective, with one of the only drawbacks being the occasional irregular spotting. It can be removed at any time, even before 3 years.
