Implants for Adolescents: An Option Worth Considering for Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancy

This publication discusses the long-acting contraceptive implant and its potential advantages for adolescents.

However, implants can be appropriate for all women, including adolescents who want to delay or space childbearing to ensure healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy.
