Just wondering how long does it take the inplant working? Is it instant or after a month it begins to offer protection?

I assume you're talking about a birth control implant?

I am only aware of Norplant as far as implanted birth control is concernced. Protection is generally provided within 24 hours of insertion, and can protect for up to 5 years.

The one that site is talking about is called Implanon, which is the only one availible in the UK, I believe. This implantable BC works for up to three years; and apparently with this implant, protection is guaranteed after one week.
