LARCs are birth control methods that provide highly effective contraception for an extended period of time (three to ten years) requiring minimal action by the user. The LARC’s may be used up to the maximum times listed above, according to the manufacturer but can be removed sooner if pregnancy is desired, or if medically indicated. Many of the Birth Control Methods are very effective in preventing pregnancy, but do not protect against HIV and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Health Care Providers are available to answer your questions, give individual instruction, provide information and help you to decide which birth control method is right for you.
