Same-Day LARC Toolkit ★

“Same-visit” provision of contraception means providing immediate access to contraceptive methods using Quick Start, and not requiring patient to return for a separate appointment on another day or even later the same day to initiate contraception. As long as a clinician can be reasonably certain a client is not pregnant, there is no medical reason to require clients to return for a follow-up visit or to initiate methods during their menses. This includes provider-dependent methods like the intrauterine device (IUD), implant, and injectable.

This toolkit offers suggested action steps, tools, and other resources to help your practice provide the full range of methods same-visit.
