To access the professional site for information on the Jadelle Contraceptive Implants please confirm that you are a healthcare professional.
You will only be prompted once per visit to the website. Registration conditions of Jadelle could differ in each country, please refer to your local prescribing information for more information.
Jadelle® implants release continuously low doses of a synthetic hormone, levonorgestrel. Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of mechanisms. The most important of these are inhibition of ovulation and thickening of the cervical mucus, which thus becomes impermeable to sperm. Jadelle® contains no estrogen.
After the counseling by your healthcare professional and making sure that you are not pregnant, the implants should be inserted within 7 days after the onset of menstrual bleeding, or immediately or within 7 days after abortion. If they are inserted at any other time, you will need to use an additional non-hormonal (barrier) method for the following 7 days. In case of questions, please consult with your healthcare professional.
Following insertion, there have been some reports of slight displacement of Jadelle and other levonorgestrel implants, which have been associated with some reports of pain or discomfort. If displacement occurs, this may involve additional incisions or visits for the removal of Jadelle.
Jadelle implants must be removed by a well-trained healthcare professional at the end of five years. However, they can be removed at any time before that, for either personal or medical reasons.
