Northland Family offers the NEW LARC Program to Delay Pregnancy

 

Delay pregnancy for 3-10 years with LARC – long-acting reversible contraception – now available at Northland Family Planning. Call 1-800-447-7354.

  • Mirena IUD: A hormone-releasing (levonorgestrel) IUD (intrauterine device) placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy for as long as you want for up to 5 years
  • Paragard IUD: A non-hormonal copper IUD placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy for as long as you want up to 10 years
  • Nexplanon: A hormone-releasing (etonogestrel) implant that is placed under the skin of your upper arm to prevent pregnancy for as long as you want for up to 3 years

Many women love these options for birth control because it’s not something you have to think about everyday or even every month.  They are convenient, long-lasting methods that are effective in helping you prevent pregnancy for as long as you want.  These methods also offer flexibility with the choice of a non-hormonal IUD option. We are also excited to be participating in a grant called getLARC.  With this grant, we are able to offer FREE IUDs and FREE Nexplanon implants to patients who qualify!  There is a small fee for required lab work but the device is FREE!! LARC methods of birth control are ideal pregnancy prevention options for many women. These methods have several benefits:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Inexpensive
    • Based on the current healthcare law, most insurance plans are required to cover the cost of prescription birth control methods, including IUD and Nexplanon devices. Northland Family Planning will help determine what kind of coverage you have.
    • If you do not have health insurance of any kind, or your deductible and co-pay are very expensive, you are eligible for a FREE device through the getLARC grant program !
  • Reversible
  • Require little to no maintenance
  • Easy to comply with!
