And I know people who have had problems with the patch and iud's. I may have to stick to the pill. Answered by Corie Coins 1 year ago.

Norplant is no longer on the market - it was taken off between 2 and 3 years ago after many women reported negative side effect, sterility, problems with Norplant removal, heavy bleeding, etc. If you or someone you know still has a Norplant insterted, you can of course see a doctor to get it removed, but they are no longer implanting them. However, there are many other forms of hormonal birth control out there; Depo, pills, the patch, the ring, Minverva (hormonal + IUD), etc. Best of luck!

Its been off the market in US since maybe 2000. They were traveling in the body of many women and were causing serious side effects. Why not try an IUD? If you ahve any questions about them I would be more than happy to answer them for you Answered by Vernetta Lotti 1 year ago.

Yes it hurt really bad, but being able to have sex every day all day, which is essential for my profession, worked out great. Have fun! Answered by Lilly Seabrooks 1 year ago.

I don't know about Norplant, thought they discontinued those; but I did try another more recent birth control method that's also an implant. It's called implanon, and like norplant it's inserted in your arm too, only it's just one stick unlike the six sticks from Norplant. I tried Implanon for four months and I had bad reactions. I spent years clearing up my face and when I finally had it clear, the Implanon messed my face up again, I gained 12 pounds, felt fatigued, and My periods would last almost 14 days! But that's just my intake on it; I immediately removed it. You on the other hand can have completely different effects. I know a lady that lost 10 pounds, cleared her face and had lesser period while on an implant, hell her periods stopped eventually. So try researching more on the Norplant, and make sure that you're making the right decision for yourself. Trust me in can be convenient if it works for you hormonally :3 Best of Luck!!

Has anyone ever tried Norplant or Implanon?!?
I'm looking into new forms of birth control and I have been reading about these. I have been on Depo for a while now so I want a change. I know they are basically the same thing but I want to hear what everyone on here thinks about them. Please give me your opinions Asked by Halina Plump 1 year ago.

I though Norplant had been taken off the market? I used Norplant for 5 years. Absolutely LOVED it. When it expired and I had it removed they said they were no longer available. I was really bummed. The downside to Norplant is that once it is in they have to cut it out. (This didn't hurt at all...but it did leave a little tiny scar.) Some people have severe reactions to the hormones in it and have to have it removed prematurely. (The people I know who experienced this also had problems with birth control pills...maybe just sensitive to the hormone therapy?) I loved not having to think about birth control a single day for 5 years!! It was so easy and convenient. Answered by Lucienne Milelr 1 year ago.

i'm currently using implanon. it's the best form of contraception around these days. takes about 5 minutes to insurte a small rod just underneath the skin in your upper arm. lasts 3 whole years. no taking pills everyday at the same time and no remember injections every 3 months either. just get it put in and don't have to worry about anything anymore. then when your 3 years is up, all you have to do is get the rod removed and you can also opt to have another one put it straight away as well. no waiting or anything like that. discuss all this with your doctor as well.

Norplant??
*jest really peeved with Norplant* Asked by Shawnna Ziegelbauer 1 year ago.

Maybe. I think they took that particular one off the market. They have a new implant on the market now. EDIT: You know what??? I am sorry you had to go through the loss of a child and the product messing up your arm!!! My point was merely that they obviously had enough valid complaints to take the product off the market!!! I think it was years before a new one was accepted. I never suggested you try it!!! If you only want medical advice than pose your question as such... "Any Dr's or nurses on line??? Can you answer this for me???" Or post it in woman's health... Or best yet call your own medical health provider and ask them!!! I think your response was very rude. Excuse me for trying to give my 2 cents worth. At least I still got 2 points... BTW: I feel the same disdain for the Depo Provera shot... EDIT: I was wondering if because of this situation you ould be considered a high risk pregnancy??? I just wondered because I had my first daughter at 32 weeks. This time around I had weekly progesterone shots to maintain the pregnancy to term. IF you talk to your Dr again it may be worth asking if the shots would counter act any negative effects of the implants. Also, do you know if there was any sort of group lawsuit against the Norplant company??? You should research that possiblity a little because the details would be contained in the complaint. Isn't there a web site where you can ask actual medical experts? I can't remember the name of it though... Lastly, I visit The March of Dimes SHARE site a LOT!!! They are the experts on prematurity and miscarrige. I have had tons of experts answer my questions there. There is also a place you can go there to talk to other parents who have lost little angels. The March of Dimes goal is for eventually no family to have to go through that. Answered by Allan Roufs 1 year ago.

I have never heard of Norplant and I have been on so much med over the last year and a half. I was told to try Ovulex which is a natural tablet. visit ovulex.com Answered by Larue Benthall 1 year ago.

I had the original Norplant back in 1994 and had to have the capsules removed in 1996 because of the side effects. I switched to birth control pills for a while then got an IUD. Norplant is a hormonal birth control and common side effects include: weight gain, nervousness, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, mastalgia (breast pain), dizziness, dermatitis/rash, hirsutism (excessive hair growth (like facial hair)), scalp-hair loss, headache, depression, and acne. Sometimes, pain, itching or infection at the site of the implant will occur. Ovarian cysts may also occur, but usually do not require treatment, although they can cause pain even if benign. Irregular menstrual periods, especially for the first approximately three months, including periods lasting longer than normal, bleeding or spotting between periods, heavy bleeding, or going with no period for the mentioned period of time is also common. More than 50,000 women have filed law suits against Wyeth Pharmaceuticals over Norplant side effects and it is no longer available in the US. Answered by Eloise Kutella 1 year ago.

I've searched google for answers but it doesn't explain why it was removed from the options' list. The website that I visited said it was "voluntairily removed" from the market. Can anyone tell me WHY? (or why YOU think it was removed?) Answered by Kris Woliver 1 year ago.

Norplant was a dangerous drug. The side effects were serious, caused cancer and other hormonal issues. The other problem is that you could not measure the levels or docs were not doing it often enough to see if patients were getting too much of the drug. Actually my former ob gyn was the originator of that drug and its first one to test it on patients. I refused. You dont want that drug. You dont want the patch either, same problem, not made for everyone and one size does not fit all. You get too much and you get tumors, ect. Better to use the pill and condoms, spermacides in suppositories, fewer side effects, more protection. Answered by King Mccastle 1 year ago.

I asked my doctor about this and she said that there has been some problems with people not being able to get pregnant after they stopped taking this form of birth control. Also, I guess there have been a lot of complaints from the NorPlant...a lot of side effects, so they decided to take it off the market. Answered by Venus Siddon 1 year ago.

Because some women had problems with nausea and headaches, some were scarred because of inserting or removing the rods, and several lawsuits were filed saying that women were not given enough warning about Norplant’s risks, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals withdrew their product. Answered by Erick Crosier 1 year ago.

Bad side effects pain, bleeding ... Cant remember what side effects But bad enough for despirate girls to pick up a knife and cut them out themselves. There are better ones now Answered by Kayla Demase 1 year ago.
