About IUDs

IUDs are the most effective, reversible, easy to use, safe, long term form of birth control available to women of any reproductive age whether they have been pregnant or not. In fact, IUDs are 99.2 - 99.9% effective.

It is a small soft T-shaped device with a nylon string attached. It is inserted into your uterus (womb) during a simple, sterile procedure by a Physician in the clinic.

Some IUDs contain a hormone called progesterone which can reduce menstrual bleeding or stop menstruation altogether. Another type contains copper and is a preferred choice for women who are seeking to avoid hormones. The devices are covered by most health insurance plans but must be inserted by a qualified practitioner.

Copper, Mirena and Kyleena IUDs are all suitable choices for users who cannot use estrogen containing methods including breastfeeding mothers and smokers.
