These small plastic rods are implanted in women's arms for up to7 years. Prescription is required and can cost. Effective rate is than 1 pregnancy for every 100 women every year. Effectiveness has decreased with those women who are higher in weight. Safe for all women, however, bleeding and irregular menstruation can occur. Also, there is no STI protection.
