What is an implanon?
An implanon is a small hormonal device, around the size of a match stick, which is inserted under the skin usually in the arm. It is a highly effective form on contraception that lasts for 3 years.
Considering an Implanon?
The first step is to book in for an initial consult to discuss the option and make sure it is safe for you. You will be given a script for the Implanon, which you will have to purchase from a pharmacy.
Implanon can be inserted by Dr Overton in a short office based procedure. You will be booked for a 30 minute appointment, however the procedure itself only takes around 5 minutes.
What is the cost to an Implanon?
The initial consult cost will be charged at $80 (with a rebate of $37.60). The procedure will cost $100 (with a Medicare rebate of $73.20). An Implanon can be purchased for the cost of a PBS script from the pharmacy.
Dr Overton is available Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon and all day Tuesday.
