Noveleta conducts sub-dermal implant procedures

NOVELETA, Cavite (PIA) – The Novelete Municipal Health Office recently performed Progestin Sub-dermal Implant (PSI) insertion and removal procedures at the Primark Mall vaccination site, Barangay Magdiwang on March 4, 2022.

Around 54 women had implants removed while 24 had the sub-dermal insertions.

According to Dr. Bucu, the Progestin Sub-dermal Implant (PSI) is an effective approach to meeting the global need for more beneficial and convenient manner of birth spacing among women and is part of the birth control program of the Department of Health (DOH).

“The DOH strongly promotes the use of implants for couples who wish to space their pregnancies,” said Dr. Bucu.

Noveleta RHU Family Planning team head, Ms. Loida Lagpao Andrade said that the health office advises couples to wait at least eighteen months before getting pregnant again to maintain the best health for both the mother and child.

Couples should be responsible for the welfare of their family through family planning and birth spacing thus, it is proper to consult the Family Planning experts in the RHU or Barangay Health Centers. (Ruel Francisco with reports from the Noveleta RHU/Dennis Abrina)
