Insertion and removal of contraceptive rods
Dr Amanda Nutting, Dr Andrea Lung, Dr Aiko (Tiarni) Tomita and Dr Coniela Sgroihave have all completed training to insert contraceptive rods. They are designed to be inserted under local anaesthetic directly under the skin of the inner aspect of the non-dominant upper arm. The contraceptive rod provides effective contraception for 3 years.
