Still no baby since norplant, been years.
I got norplant in 1992 after had twins had I had a pregnancy before but lost it. I had it in my arm four years, no babies ever since been trying for 15 years doctor's don't no why. I.know in my heart it was the norplant. Ruined my life!

I had my norplant in for the full 5 years. I never had a period the entire time it was in. It took 10 years after it was out for my periods to become normal and I did become pregnant after that point. I KNOW it was the norplant. That is the least of the effects the norplant had on my life. Ruined my youth.
