  • EXPERIENCE WITH SIDE-EFFECTS AND HEALTH RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH NORPLANT(R) IMPLANT USE IN ADOLESCENTS CONTRACEPTION Rosenthal, S. L., Biro, F. M., Kollar, L. M., Hillard, P. J., RAUH, J. L. 1995; 52 (5): 283-285

    Abstract:

    Levonorgestrel implants (Norplant) have been recommended as a contraceptive method for teenage women. Our experience suggests that the use of Norplant implants in adolescents is associated with bleeding irregularities and modest weight gain. There is no effect on condom use or STD acquisition. Despite the bleeding irregularities, we documented high continuation rates, suggesting that with appropriate pre-insertion counseling, Norplant implants can be a successful contraceptive method for adolescent women.
