SCC Health Clinic Now Offering Nexplanon

Terra Menghini-Cox, the Family Nurse Practitioner at the Sokaogon Chippewa Community Health Clinic, is now offering the Nexplanon birth control implant.

Nexplanon is one of the most effective birth control options available, and is a long-term birth control option that lasts for up to three years to prevent pregnancy. It can be removed at any time.

Nexplanon is an implant, not an IUD. It is a small, thin, and flexible contraceptive arm implant that is placed discreetly under the skin of your inner, upper arm by your health care provider. It is over 99% effective – just as effective as the pill.

Health insurance covers 100% of cost of the implant. Please call the Clinic for a consultation at 715-478-5180.
