Transcript birth control A /V** Make J: the Norplant system day 1 day 2 day 7 day 30 Surgery! How exciting! Not! Anxiety was normal for those rceiving Norplant, but it soon passed when the skilled technician explained it was a short procedure. On the second day, the swelling was very evident. Driving was possible, but difficult. So was sleeping. It was painful for a few days, but well worth the result. By the end of the first week, the arm was still a little sore and swollen, but activities were easy. Freinds all wanted to know where the bruise came from. F* 294 ebruary, 1991: a revolutionary new product, the Norplant system, was introduced to America. One UH student, Jane Doe, received that device. This is her story. "I first heard about Norplant from my mom, who was concerned that my live-in boyfriend wasn't using a condom. She told me about the Baylor Population Control Program where students could get Norplant, which can cost up to $1,000, at a lower price. I ended up paying only $36 for it. At first I was a little scared because Norplant consists of six matchstick-sized silicone rods filled with progestrin that would be Student Life surgically implanted in the underside of my upper left arm . But the nurse at the hospital was very gentle , which helped me to relax. After she gave me some tests to make sure I was healthy, not allergic to the hormone, and not pregnant, she injected Novocaine into my arm. That needle was all I felt during the whole procedure, which lasted only five minutes. All she did was make a tiny incision in my arm and then use what looked like a syringe to push the implants into my arm one at a time. I didn't even get any stitches,just a piece of surgical tape and a pressure bandage. My arm was pretty sore that day after the Novocaine wore off, but it was really no big deal. There was a lot of bruising, but it was completely gone after about two weeks. I've had Norplant in my arm now for seven months and the only side effect I've had is that my periods tend to be longer and more frequent. It's a pain, but completely worth it. After all, Norplant is so effective, it's gurranteed to prevent pregnancy for five full years. With Norplant, I know for sure I can not get pregnant. There's none of those monthly stresses where most of my friends who used the pill or a . Business as usual! All the bruising and swelling were completely gone, and the arm could be used just as before the surgery. And, there was only a tiny scar. condom wonder whether or not it worked for sure. Norplant is perfect for me and my boyfriend, who are monogamous. But, if we should split up and I decide to have sex with someone else, I would need to use a condom to prevent disease. Norplant only protects against pregnancy. I love my Norplant and I am glad I got it. Ireccomend it to any female who is having sex but doesn't want to get pregnant or want a permanent form of birth control. I hope more women will choose Norplant, I think it can reduce unwanted pregnancies." Thank you, Jane. - Angela Snyder
