Abstract

NORPLANT subdermal implants used for contraception by 816 women in international clinical trials have proved to be highly effective: the three-year cumulative net, first-segment pregnancy rate was 0.7 per 100 acceptors. The first-segment continuation rate through three years was 45 per 100 initial acceptors, which is comparable to that associated with IUDs.
