Yet, another sunrise.

It makes you wonder how many of these photos I have, doesn't it?

Birth Control: Under Her Skin
...Implanon is the name of this implantable contraceptive. It's designed to prevent pregnancy for three full years after a doctor places it under the skin of a woman's arm. That means three years of not worrying about taking birth control pills daily, or changing Ortho-Evra patches weekly, or replacing Nuva-rings monthly...

But, on the plus side, it's been found to be more than 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy...
"more than 99 percent effective" is a darned good percentage. It sounds like it would be kind of expensive, though, as the woman would have to have a local anesthesia to have it performed. I wonder if insurances will cover it? Back in the day, many insurances didn't cover "the pill". They still might not. It's funny, they were happy to pay hospitalization costs for having a baby, but not for birth control.
