An intrauterine device (IUD), also known as a intrauterine contraceptive (IUC), is a small, flexible “T” shaped device that is placed inside of the uterus. These long-acting birth control devices can provide pregnancy prevention for 3-10 years depending on which IUD you choose. Skyla IUD is small, safe, and highly effective. IUD’s can be placed during a routine office visit in a matter of minutes.
Skyla is a soft, flexible IUD that releases small amounts of hormone locally into your uterus. It gives you birth control you can count on for up to 3 years.
- Skyla IUD is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy
- You can try to become pregnant as soon as Skyla is removed.
- Although Skyla has not been approved for the treatment of heavy vaginal bleeding, it will likely make your periods a little lighter.
