Leamington Primary Care Network Implant Form
Implant insertion/replacement/removal form
The Leamington primary care network is made up of the 8 practices based in the area. We work together to improve the care of all patients in Leamington. To this end the network has established a service to provide long acting contraception closer to home. Patients from Cubbington Road, Sherbourne, Croft, Waterside, Whitnash, Spa & Warwick Gates are all eligible.
Long-acting contraception can provide a safe and effective method of contraception.
The contraceptive implant is a small rod sited in the upper arm which provides contraception for up to 3 years.
More information can be found on thee NHS choices and sexwise websites.

If your implant is overdue its replacement (and this should be done every 3 years), it is important you are using alternative contraception or have abstained from sex for at least 3 weeks prior to your appointment. Otherwise we may be unable to proceed with the replacement.
Please write N/A if not applicable
Is it important we avoid fitting an implant if you could be pregnant.
Not everyone has a regular cycle. If you do not know the exact date please select the closest possible or write N/A
Implant removals (without replacement)
If you would like your implant removed and do not wish to have another inserted please ensure you are using condoms/alternative contraception or abstain from sex for 7 days prior to your appointment. This is because sperm can survive for up to 7 days, and so if your implant is removed in this time period there is a risk of pregnancy.
Implants do not protect against sexually transmitted infections.
If you have no current symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection but are concerned you may be at risk you can request an STI screen to be delivered to you at home via this link: https://www.freetest.me/
If you do have symptoms then please contact the sexual health clinic. Details can be found on this link: https://www.sexualhealthwarwickshire.nhs.uk/clinics.php
Some medical problems mean that certain methods of contraception are not suitable. Please fill in the following information:
