  • I didn't think they still did/made Norplant?

  • I had it ten years ago. I gained 30 lbs and I felt sick all the time. I kept it in for two years then had it removed. I was 15-17 when I had them in. I did like it even though I didn't feel well as that could have just been me not eating and sleeping well. I had mine done at a family planning clinic so it didn't cost anything.

  • I'm talking about Implanon. It's the newer version and has been out since I believe 2006. It's not the same one as before that caused a lot of issues. That one has been off the market for a while.
