Abstract: The Norplant®-2 rod system consists of two silastic rods in which levonorgestrel has been incorporated with the polymer. The continuation rate at the end of five year was 62%. No accidental pregnancies occurred throughout the five years of use. The post-removal conception rate in women desiring pregnancy was 70.8% at the end of two years. The majority of acceptors were happy with the rods and 86.8% expressed the desire to have another set of implants inserted following removal of the first set. The study shows the Norplant®-2 rod system to be a well accepted method of family planning.
