Dr Barnes is an experienced fitter of contraceptive implants. The contraceptive implant (Nexplanon) is an extremely effective method of contraception which lasts up to 3 years. It is inserted under the skin of the upper arm, not visible but just palpable below the skin. The implant releases a hormone called progesterone in to the blood stream which suppresses ovulation and thus prevents pregnancy. For further information about the implant please click here.
We aim to see you and fit / change/ remove the implant at your initial visit (in a one stop appointment). To ensure the most efficient visit for you, it is important that there is no risk of you being pregnant at the time of your fitting appointment. Please click here to check when in your cycle you can have the implant fitted. Please ensure you tell our booking team you wish for your appointment to be for an implant fitting /removal when you contact us, so they may allow the correct amount of time for the procedure.
Dr Barnes is also able to remove and change contraceptive implants.
