Patient.co.uk: Intrauterine System (IUS)

 

The intrauterine system (IUS) is a very effective method of contraception. It is also used to treat heavy periods (menorrhagia). It sits inside the womb (uterus). Once fitted, it works as a contraceptive for five years. Most women who use an IUS have no problems with it. It is sometimes called a 'hormone coil' because in the 1960s some intrauterine contraceptives were coil-shaped. Mirena® is the name of the only IUS available in the UK.
