In brief: No longer available
Norplant (levonorgestrel) is not available anymore in the United States.
There is a similar device called implanon. It is a thin, small cylindrical structure that is easily inserted under your skin. It lasts for three years. It has no estrogen in it. It is 99% effective. It can be associated with irregular bleeding.
