i took out my norplant before 6 months but still i can't be pregnant

Norplant is a contraceptive

Norplant is a contraceptive implant, consisting of six small plastic rods surgically placed under the skin of the upper arm for up to five years. Most women become pregnant soon after Norplant is removed, but the hormones in the device can exert an effect on your body for many months after removal.

If you are having normal periods since you stopped Norplant, this is a good sign. Many women who have never used any birth control drugs have difficulty becoming pregnant, but for women not using any contraceptive, over 90% will become pregnant after 12 months. You can use fertility awareness techniques to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

Hi, I will be answering your


I will be answering your question here today and any that follow. If you still have pain from the norplant you need to consult your doctor. It is not normal to have back and cervical pain a year after a removal. I assume these pains are new? Again, please consult your doctor it sounds like you have something unrelated to the norplant going on. It is always best to be safe than sorry and a quick trip to your doctor will allow you to know what is going on and receive any treatment if needed.

Best of Luck,
