Long-acting methods

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods of contraception don’t rely on you remembering to take them, but they do need a trained doctor or nurse to administer or fit them for you.

These types of contraception are often inserted or injected and can remain effective for a long time. LARC includes implants, injections and the coil.​
