MY cousin was on birth control not sure what the name of it is, but it is where they put it in your arm it can stay in your arm up to 3 years and when you get it removed you have to get it cut out of your arm? Has anyone had this kind of birth control? If so I need help with a question?

she had it taken out 3 months ago and she said she has not started her period yet. She said that she keeps getting cramps like she is going to start been doing so 1 month after having it out but nothing still hasn't started yet. She said the other night she was in bed crying that is how bad her cramps are. Does anyone know anything about these birth controls and why she keeps having cramps but nothing? She is going to go back to the dr, but she would like answers why she is waiting. She is a pretty big girl by the way don't know if that has anything to do with it

  • That is the Norplant system. As for how she is fairing since having it removed. She REALLY needs to speak with her OB/GYN--only her doctor is qualified to treat her and consider her medical history.
