More information on Intrauterine Devices (IUD)

An Intrauterine Device (IUD) is a small, T-shaped contraceptive device inserted into the uterus by a medical professional.

It prevents pregnancy by creating a hostile environment for sperm and/or releasing hormones that inhibit ovulation.

The benefits of an IUD include long-term effectiveness, convenience, and high rates of satisfaction among users.

It offers a reversible form of birth control that doesn’t require daily attention, providing convenient and reliable protection against pregnancy for up to 5 years.

Hormonal IUDs can also help with heavy periods and period pain and sometimes your periods stop altogether. This is dependent on medical advice per your health status.

Who IUDs are recommended for

IUDs are recommended for women seeking long-term contraception without daily maintenance.

They are suitable for women of reproductive age who desire highly effective, yet reversible birth control.

FAQs / People also ask

Any pain during IUD insertion can vary from person to person, but most women only experience mild to moderate discomfort during the procedure.

However, your doctor can help to minimise pain should you require, such as local anaesthesia or pain medications.

The lifespan of an IUD depends on its type. Hormonal IUDs typically last up to 5 years. However, they can be removed at any time if desired.

This is extremely rare, but can occur, and means the device partially or completely comes out of the uterus.

Regular check-ups can help monitor the position of the IUD which may be recommended during the first few months or so depending on your circumstances.

Some women may experience irregular bleeding or cramping, especially in the initial months after insertion.

Hormonal IUDs can also cause hormonal side effects like mood changes or acne, but these are generally rare, mild and improve over time.

No, IUDs do not protect against STIs. They only provide contraception by preventing pregnancy.

Once removed, fertility typically returns to normal quickly. IUDs do not have a long-term impact on fertility.
