Intrauterine system (IUS)

Intrauterine-system-(IUS)

This is a very reliable contraceptive which is fitted in your uterus.  It lasts five years, but can be removed easily at any time.  It contains a progestogen hormone and so it makes your periods much lighter and may even make them disappear.  You will need a pre-insertion counselling visit and assessment.  IUSs are fitted at The Wolverton Centre in a booked appointment clinic.
