Never had children
You may be a young woman focusing on your studies. Or you may have just started a new job and spend your days travelling to destinations all over the country. Sometimes your work may take you on long-haul flights to destinations in different time zones. You may work hard and play hard and enjoy being able to do what you want. Not getting pregnant for the foreseeable future is very important to you, and while at some stage you would like a family, it’s way off in the future.
When you have a busy lifestyle, remembering to take a pill every day or you or your partner always having condoms available is a risky strategy. So, a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) may be the perfect choice as it frees you from having to worry about pills or condoms and the fear of getting pregnant at a time when you are focusing on your studies or career. It just needs one administration and you can have between 12 weeks and up to several years of contraceptive protection, depending on the method you choose1,2,3,4.
