Intra-uterine systems/devices (coils)
An intrauterine system (IUS) is a small T-shaped plastic device that is placed in the womb (uterus) and releases a hormone (progestogen) which thins the lining of the womb giving rise to lighter and possibly no periods. Dr Byrne offers both the Mirena and the Jaydess systems. The Mirena system has a contraceptive action of up to 5 years and if fitted after age 45 the coil may remain in place until menopause. The Jaydess coil is smaller and narrower than the Mirena and lasts 3years. The regular intrauterine device (IUD) is a plastic and copper coil which contains no hormones and has a contraceptive action of up to 10 years.
