What is an I.U.C.D.?

A contraceptive coil, sometimes referred to as Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (I.U.C.D.), is a small device put into your uterus by a doctor to prevent pregnancy. 


Contraceptive coils come in two types - hormone-containing coils like Mirena and non-hormone-containing coils like Ballerina and Copper T.


What is a Mirena?

Mirena is a hormone-containing Intra-Uterine System (I.U.S.) used for birth control and H.R.T. It is a small T-shaped device that contains the Progesterone hormone. In addition to serving as a preventative measure against pregnancy, it will also serve as a component of hormone replacement therapy.
