This video goes over the various Long Acting Reversible Contraception methods. It begins by defining contraception and Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC), then lists the different options for longer-lasting birth control. It explains Depo Provera ( or “the shot”), the implant (Nexplanon), and intrauterine device (IUD), including how each method works to prevent pregnancy and how to insert and remove each. The video states that while each LARC method is more than 99% effective against unwanted pregnancy, none provide protection against STDs, so it is important to also use a condom during sex.
