IUD Contraception​

At Bloom Women’s Health, we understand the significance of informed choices in reproductive health. There are currently two types of hormonal IUDs available to women in Australia, Mirena and Kyleena, and we are happy to discuss which of these options would be best suited to your unique needs.

Understanding IUD Contraception​

Long-acting, pill-free contraception, such as intra-uterine devices (IUDs) are becoming very popular with women around the world including Australia and are hailed as one of the most dependable forms of reversible birth control available to women today. These tiny, T-shaped plastic devices contain hormones in their stem and are inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. For most women, they are incredibly effective, lasting for years without requiring daily attention.

Kyleena and Mirena: Your Options Explored

Kyleena

Kyleena is a top-tier IUD designed to provide up to five years of contraceptive protection. Kyleena is slightly smaller than Mirena and contains a slightly lower amount of hormone dosage. It’s an ideal choice for those seeking a reliable birth control method with minimal hormonal effects.

Mirena

Mirena, another trusted IUD, offers up to five years of contraceptive protection. It’s recommended for women seeking a longer-term solution and contains a slightly higher hormone dosage, making it a suitable choice for various preferences and needs.

Choosing the Right Option for You

While both are highly effective forms of contraception, our gynaecologists at Bloom Women’s Health will guide you through the nuances of Kyleena and Mirena, helping you select the IUD that best supports your lifestyle and health needs.
