Levoplant is a safe, highly-effective, long-acting, reversible hormonal contraceptive implant that is inserted beneath the skin of a woman’s upper arm. Levoplant is made up of two thin, matchstick-sized, white cylindrical plastic rods each containing 75mg of Levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestin similar to the naturally occurring hormone progesterone. Levonorgestrel is slowly and continuously released over three years, preventing pregnancy. After three years, Levoplant must be removed. Women wishing to avoid pregnancy can replace the old Levoplant device with a new one.
