|Issue Date:||1992||Citation:||Singh, K., Viegas, O.A.C., Koh, C.L.S., Ratnam, S.S. (1992). Effect of Norplant®-2 rods on haemostatic function. Contraception 46 (1) : 71-81. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/0010-7824(92)90133-E||Abstract:||A longitudinal study on one-hundred Singaporean women using Norplant®-2 rod implant for contraception and their effects on the haemostatic function was carried out. There was a decrease in vitamin K-dependent Factors II, VII and a tendency towards lowered fibrinolytic activity after prolonged use of Norplant®-2 rods. The results indicate that the Norplant®-2 rod implant system does not contribute towards hypercoagulable state but increased platelets and accelerated platelet aggregation observed will require further study to ascertain whether there is a concomitant increase in platelet activation.||Source Title:||Contraception||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/36908||ISSN:||00107824||DOI:||10.1016/0010-7824(92)90133-E|
