One-year continuation of the etonogestrel contraceptive implant in women with postabortion or interval placement

The study investigated whether women with etonogestrel implant placement in the immediate postabortion period have similar continuation rates to women with interval placement.The risk of discontinuation in women with postabortion placement was higher but not statistically different than women with interval placement (unadjusted hazard ratio 1.79, 95% confidence interval 0.81-3.96). For women who want a contraceptive implant after an abortion, immediate placement should be available.
