What is the birth control implant? | As told by a Nurse Practitioner

Deanna Tikhonov WHNP-BC reviews everything you need to know about the birth control implant. Unlike many videos out there that talk about personal experiences, as a nurse practitioner I’m discussing the pros, cons, side effects and procedure. Every women can have a unique experience with different birth control methods and not everyone reacts the same.

If you are interested in using the birth control implant this is a great tool to use to help decide if this may be a good option for YOU!
