Mirena®, Paraguard®, Skyla®, and LILETTA® - IUD Placement

Mirena®

Mirena is an FDA-approved intrauterine device (IUD) that is recommended for women who’ve had a child. It’s made of soft, flexible plastic. Getting Mirena is nonsurgical, and placement is done by your healthcare provider during a routine office visit. It typically takes just a few minutes.

Every woman is different, and some women may experience discomfort or spotting during or after placement. These symptoms should go away shortly. If they don’t, contact your healthcare provider. Within 4 to 6 weeks you should return for a follow-up visit to make sure that everything is okay.

Paraguard®

Paragard® is a form of birth control known as an intrauterine device (IUD). It’s sometimes called an intrauterine contraceptive (IUC). Paragard® is more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy and has no hormones at all.

Paragard® is a small, soft, and flexible T-shaped device made primarily of plastic and copper that your healthcare provider places in your uterus at an office visit. Once it’s inserted, all you need to do is a simple monthly string check. Otherwise, you shouldn’t feel it at all and neither should your partner.

Do not use Paragard® if you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers. Less than 1% of users get a serious infection called pelvic inflammatory disease. Frequently Asked Questions, Click Here

Skyla®

Skyla is a type of intrauterine device, also known as an IUD. But what is that, exactly?

An IUD is a small, t-shaped device that’s placed in your uterus by your OB/GYN during a routine visit.

Getting an IUD is nonsurgical and typically takes just a few minutes. Once in place, it provides continuous, highly effective birth control.

Everyone is different, and some women may experience discomfort or spotting during or after placement. These symptoms should go away shortly. If they don’t, contact your OB/GYN. Within 4 to 6 weeks, you should return for a follow-up visit to make sure that everything is okay.

Skyla is an IUD that releases a low dose of hormones and is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy for up to 3 years.

Completely reversible and can be removed by your OB/GYN at any time if you change your mind, so you can try to get pregnant right away
