Jadelle is an implant system that provides effective, long-acting, reversible contraception for women. Developed in the 1980s by The Population Council, the two-rod Jadelle implant system is the successor of Norplant (the first implantable hormone delivery system developed by The Population Council). Jadelle is composed of two thin, flexible silicone rods, each containing 75 mg levonorgestrel (a synthetic progestin) and is currently labeled for five years of use. It is one of the most highly effective contraceptive methods. Jadelle is the first contraceptive implant prequalified by the World Health Organization since September 2009.
