Did you know? IUDs are considered one of the most effective forms of birth control by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG).
At Capital Women’s Care Division 67 we have a collaborative practice featuring three Obstetrician-Gynecologists (OB-GYNs) and a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) all trained to insert IUDs.
We love to talk to our patients about their reproductive goals, when or if they want to start a family, grow their family or help with their period symptoms. One of the tools to help during this journey is an IUD. IUD stands for intrauterine device, or a small device placed inside your uterus to help prevent pregnancy or help with period symptoms.
There are many different types of IUDs. There’s a non hormonal one, ParaGard and hormonal types Mirena, Lilleta and Kyleena. The ParaGard IUD has no hormones, it is made up of copper which repels sperm making and is an effective form of contraception. This IUD is preferred by patients who generally have no symptoms with their periods and want a non hormonal form of contraception.
The Mirena, Lilleta and Kyleena have one hormone, progesterone. This is different from regular birth control pills that tend to have estrogen and progesterone. In addition to preventing pregnancies, hormonal IUDs can lighten your periods and reduce cramps and pain associated with your period. IUDs are great for patients who are looking for a long term effective reversible form of contraception that they don’t have to take every day.
Our providers offer top of the line care for all your obstetrical and gynecological needs. We would love to answer questions about IUDs as well as all your gynecologic questions. Helping our patients find the right form of contraception is very rewarding and we look forward to working with you!
