The implant - known by brand as Nexplanon - is a tiny rod that’s inserted under the skin of your upper arm. It’s so small, in fact, most people can’t see it once it’s inserted—which means it can be your little secret, if you’re so inclined.
The IUD is a little, t-shaped piece of plastic that gets put in the uterus and mess with the way sperm can move which prevents fertilization (sperm and egg meeting). Sounds a little odd, but it works like a charm.
For people 21 and older with a uterus, sterilization is a procedure that closes or blocks the fallopian tubes so pregnancy cannot occur. The fallopian tubes are where eggs and sperm meet. If they can’t meet, then pregnancy can’t occur.
