Intrauterine Device

An intrauterine device is placed inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. It is a form of long-acting, reversible contraception. We offer all FDA-approved IUDs. The Mirena and Lillete IUDs contain progesterone-like hormone and are effective for 5 years. Kyleena IUD is designed for women who do not have children and is also effective for 5 years. The Paragard IUD is non-hormonal and lasts for 10 years. All IUDs are 99% effective in preventing pregnancy and are placed/removed in the office. On a rare occasion, placement or removal that is difficult needs to be done under ultrasound guidance or in the operating room.
