Long-acting, immediately reversible and highly effective

What is a Kyleena IUD?

Kyleena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that provides reversible, long-term contraception for women. The Kyleena IUD prevents pregnancies with up to 98.6% efficiency throughout its five-year lifespan by gradually releasing hormones. A medical professional inserts Kyleena into the uterus to prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years. Kyleena is a soft and flexible T-shaped IUD that slowly releases levonorgestrel, a type of progestin, into the uterus. This synthetic hormone has been widely used in various birth control pills and has been proven effective.

How does Kyleena IUD Work to Help Prevent Pregnancy?

Levonorgestrel is present in Kyleena in amounts of 19.5 mg. Levonorgestrel only enters your system in small concentrations since Kyleena continuously delivers its smaller dose at a slow rate into your uterus. It can last for up to five years before having to be changed.

It works in the following ways and prevents pregnancy:

  • Causing the mucus in the cervix to thicken, thus preventing sperm from entering the uterus.
  • Causing the uterine lining to be thin, thus reducing the chances of an egg getting attached to the uterus.
  • Halting a sperm from moving to an egg, preventing any chance of fertilization.

The IUD can be taken out whenever you wish to start a family. The IUD Clinic provides our patients with the ideal birth control option after conducting a thorough assessment.

Benefits of Kyleena IUD

There are numerous benefits to utilizing Kyleena. These are some of the primary explanations why some of our patients favour this method of pregnancy control:

  • A low-hormone method of birth control.
  • Reversible and long-term birth control.
  • Offers continuous protection from birth control for up to 5 years.
  • Suitable for breastfeeding mothers.

It has been demonstrated that Kyleena works to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. You can get the IUD removed whenever you want to get pregnant or the five years of its validity have passed. It is one of those birth control methods that offer maximum ease because it doesn't call for daily pill use.

It's crucial that we carry out a careful analysis of every patient in order to choose the best birth control method for them. Once the Kyleena IUD birth control method is finalized and implanted conveniently through the expert hands of Dr. Michelle Gerber at The IUD Clinic, a follow-up session after 4 to 6 weeks will be scheduled to assess the situation.
