(Long-acting reversible contraceptives)

LARC

How to get contraceptives through wen:

WEN clients having an abortion at Dr. Benjamin's office, Women & Teens Healthcare, or one of the Planned Parenthood clinics have access to a reduced cost or free Intrauterine Device (IUD) or Nexplanon arm implant at the time of their abortion

 

For more information about IUDs and other long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) click here. In some cases, an IUD can be inserted at the same time an abortion is performed. No need to wait for a follow-up visit. Please ask the staff at these clinics about this option when you make your appointment or at the time of your abortion.

 

Medicaid:

Women who are insured under the Medicaid insurance program can also visit any Medicaid provider and receive an IUD at no cost.  In some cases, an IUD can be inserted at the same time a termination is performed.  If this option is of interest to you, women insured under Medicaid should ask if the clinic they have selected is a Medicaid provider.
