Norplant (Levonorgestrel) is a birth control method used by women. Norplant was first introduced in 1990. Norplant is a long-term reversible contraception used to prevent pregnancy in women. Sometimes women complain about brown discharge during use of Norplant.
A set of six specially designed capsules (six match-sized capsules) are surgically inserted by your doctor or health provider (family doctor, trained midwife) just under the skin in the upper arm. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes. Once the capsules have been inserted under the skin, no additional steps are needed to prevent pregnancy. Norplant becomes effective within 24 hours of implantation – protection begins 24 hours after Norplant has been inserted if done during the first 7 days of the menstrual cycle.
The Norplant capsules contain a hormone called “progestin”. The medication is slowly released into the body over a five year period and prevents pregnancy for up to 5 years. The capsules may be replaced after 5 years if continued contraception is desired. The capsules may also be removed at any time by health professionals. Fertility is restored within 5-14 days after Norplant is removed.
Brown discharge is pretty common and very unpleasant on-going side effect of Norplant. Brown discharge is indicating hormonal changes and hormonal disbalance in women body. Many service providers consider brown discharge as a normal situation during use of Norpland.
