Question Norplat anyone?

Hello! I was wondering if anyone here has used or is currently using Norplant as a means of birth control. I have been on the pill for years and am getting tired of the monthly expense and the daily routine. I have been thinking about Norplant, but I wanted to get some first-hand accounts of how it actually worked for people. Thank you reading and any information you can share!

Dont have Norplant but have Implanon which is a similar implant in the upper arm. I had it in on 3 December and all went well. I started bleeding on NYE and havent stopped yet! I am beginning to think that if it doesnt show at least some sign of stopping in the next couple of days I am going to have it removed. However, dont let my horror story stop you, I think there are some folk for whom it works very well! It may be doing funny things for me because I am actually using it as the progesterone component of my HRT (the oestrogen is also implanted)

I'd say that if you are one of the lucky ones and get the "no periods for years" result then it would be fantastic!

Belle if you plan on having kids in the future, I would probably avoid any of these Progestin laced products such as Depo and Norplant. They can really mess your system up even after you discontinue use. I myself have not had any major problems but both depo and norplant have alot of unhappy campers.

I had the norplant for 4 years and never had a period. I only had it removed because I wanted to get pregnant. However, I did get the depo shot after I had the baby and I bleed for 6 months straight. Guess you could say that was good birth control!

I had norplant for 2 years and had a lot of bleeding and had them removed. If you get them and decide you want to have them removed, it hurts twice as bad as get them put in because the tissue grows to the tubs. I myself had no problems with the depo shot and liked it better.
