Abstract: Desire for planned pregnancy and disruption of menstrual rhythm were the two main reasons for NORPLANT® implant removal in Singapore. The post-removal conception rate in women desiring planned pregnancy was 81% at the end of one year. This rate is comparable to normal rates of fecundity and the rates for former users of IUD and Depo-provera. It thus appears that NORPLANT® offers a highly effective, safe, acceptable and reversible method of contraception.
