I have norplants since 2005 July and this is the 5th year am supposed to remove, but Iam experiencing dizzness, tender breast, nervous, skin iflamations and weight loss could these be the side effects?

The symptoms you listed --

The symptoms you listed -- dizziness, tender breast, nervous, skin inflammation -- are all possible side effects of Norplant. However, if you have had Norplant for 5 years, it is unlikely that you would just be having these problems now. The medicine has probably been all used up over the 5 years you have had the implants.

Something else is probably causing these symptoms. Could it be that you are pregnant? You should have a pregnancy test to find out for sure.
