NEXPLANON in Houston, TX

Some women in Houston and surrounding areas of Texas, including Cypress, Sugarland, and Katy, prefer the convenience of an IUD, but not the placement in the uterus. Dr. Farhina Imtiaz, a board-certified (gynecological) surgeon at North Cypress Women’s Center, offers NEXPLANON® as an alternative to IUDs and other types of contraception.


NEXPLANON® is a long-term contraceptive device that is implanted in your arm versus uterine implantation of IUDs. The flexible device is approximately the same length as a toothpick. It is proven to be 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy, and the NEXPLANON® device can stay in your arm for up to three years.


NEXPLANON® is preferred amongst women because:

  • You do not have to remember to take pills
  • The device is not inserted into the uterus

When Can I Use NEXPLANON®?

NEXPLANON® is a long-term contraceptive device that stays in your arm for up to three years. As long as the device is in the arm, you are protected against pregnancy.


Dr. Imtiaz inserts NEXPLANON® just under the skin on the inside of the upper arm. Within 24 hours, the device begins to release hormones. The hormones work with your body to prevent pregnancy.

NEXPLANON® Preparation

Because NEXPLANON® should not be used by women who are pregnant, Dr. Imtiaz will ask if you believe that you are pregnant. If you are uncertain, she may order a pregnancy test. Dr. Imtiaz will also review your medical history to determine if you have a history of any medical problems that may preclude you from using NEXPLANON® for contraception.


You will have some changes to your menstrual cycle, such as lighter bleeding. After insertion of NEXPLANON®, your periods may be longer or shorter, and your menstrual cycle may be irregular.

How Much Does NEXPLANON® Cost in Houston?

NEXPLANON® is covered by most medical insurance policies. Your insurance carrier will determine your out-of-pocket expenses. You can pay for your portion with cash, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.

Is NEXPLANON® Right for Me?

While NEXPLANON® is not recommended for certain women, the long-lasting contraceptive device may be right for you if you want the convenience of an IUD but do not want a device in your uterus.
