Summary of "Assessing Weight Status in Adolescent and Young Adult Users of the Etonogestrel Contraceptive Implant."

There is inconsistent data regarding hormonal contraception and weight. Weight concerns may deter teens from using highly effective contraception such as the etonogestrel subdermal implant (ENG). There is little literature about weight gain and adolescent ENG use, most studies involve adult women. The purpose of this study is to evaluate weight/BMI change in adolescent and young adult ENG users compared to non-users.
