  • The Norplant implant was banned. It had dangerous side effects. This method of BC is part of the USAID contract. After it was made illegal in the US, the company who makes it Wyeth, dumped the product on developing nations. Corruption!!

    This new implant is a spin off of the Norplant. Norplant was so scandalous and dangerous, I wouldn't get anything related to it.

    Remember, your doctor gets paid when you get a prescription! The pharma reps are in her office daily.
