IUDs and the hormonal IUS:

Most clinics are able to offer IUD removal, so contact your nearest clinic for information.

The IUD or ‘coil’ without hormones is a little ‘T’ shaped plastic device with copper round it, which it fitted into the womb by a trained nurse or doctor and then lasts for 5 or 10 years. The fitting is a bit like having a smear test with some period cramps at the same time. It has the advantages of minimal known health risks, no affect on periods and is very reliable. The disadvantage is that periods are normally a bit heavier and longer with an IUD. Very rarely women may find it uncomfortable, it may move, or it may be difficult for a doctor or nurse to remove it when needed. Samedaydoctor uses the most reliable devices and you can choose silver-core IUDs which are considered more stable than copper-only devices.

The IUS or intrauterine system with hormones is a little ‘T’ shaped plastic device which is fitted into the womb by a trained nurse or doctor and then lasts for 5 years. The fitting is a bit like having a smear test with some period cramps at the same time. It has the advantages of minimal known health risks and is very reliable. The disadvantage is that irregular bleeding is common to begin with, on average for about 3 months, but after that the majority of women have no periods at all or very occasional light bleeding only. It is a good choice for someone who has heavy periods. Rarely hormonal side effects such as breast tenderness or mood swings can occur. Very rarely women may find it uncomfortable, it may move, or it may be difficult for a doctor or nurse to remove it when needed.
