At Cary, Fuquay and Apex Pediatrics, we are proud to be following the latest recommendations from the AAP for the most effective adolescent contraception. We offer traditional guidance for birth control, including but not limited to abstinence, condoms, oral contraceptives and Depo Provera.
Our providers are trained in the insertion of Nexplanon, which is a small, soft, and flexible birth control implant that is just 4 centimeters in length. It is inserted directly and discretely under the skin on the inside of the arm. The procedure is quick with minor discomfort and Nexplanon provides up to 3 years of continuous pregnancy prevention. No daily pills, sticky patches or injections.
Once it is inserted, Nexplanon is over 99% effective. If you or your teen are interested in Nexplanon or any other form of contraception, ask to schedule a consult with one of our trained providers in ANY of our locations. We can tell you all about it!
