What is JADELLE used for and how does it work JADELLE is a long-acting (up to 5 years) progestin-only contraceptive preparation, which is inserted beneath the skin.
How does JADELLE work? Contraceptive implants such as JADELLE are among the most effective reversible methods of contraception known. However, no contraceptive is 100 percent effective. JADELLE implants consist of two thin flexible rods of a rubber-like material that come pre-loaded inside a disposable applicator. They are inserted in a minor outpatient surgical procedure just beneath the skin on the inside of your upper arm. The implants contain a synthetic hormone, levonorgestrel, which is also one of the active ingredients in many oral contraceptives. Immediately after the insertion of JADELLE implants, low doses of the hormone start to be released continuously into your body. Pregnancy is prevented through a combination of mechanisms. The most important of these are inhibition of ovulation and thickening of the cervical mucus, making it more difficult for sperm to reach the egg. Other mechanisms may also be involved. When JADELLE implants are removed, your previous fertility will resume.
What is it? The male condom is a sheath made of thin latex that covers the erect penis to prevent semen, vaginal fluid and blood from being passed between sexual partners. Male condoms made of polyurethane or natural membranes are also available for those allergic to latex, though these are more expensive. The female condom is a sheath made of polyurethane with two flexible rings at either end that is inserted into the woman’s vagina to prevent semen, vaginal fluid and blood from being passed between sexual partners.
An Intrauterine Device (IUD) for Birth Control is a small, T-shaped plastic device that is wrapped in copper or contains hormones. The IUD is inserted into your uterus by your doctor. A plastic string tied to the end of the IUD hangs down through the cervix into the vagina. You can check that the IUD is in place by feeling for this string. The string is also used by your doctor to remove the IUD.
Depo-Provera: An Injectable Contraceptive
What is Depo-Provera? Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone acetate) is an injectable medicine (a “shot”) that prevents pregnancy for up to 3 months with each injection.
Depo-Provera is a drug that is very similar to progesterone, a hormone normally produced by the ovaries every month as part of the menstrual cycle.
How does it work? Depo-Provera prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). If your ovaries do not release an egg, you are unlikely to get pregnant.
