There are many contraception solutions and it is important to find the right solution for you and your stage of life.
Often women wanting a different contraceptive solution want to try the Mirena™ IUD system. This is a small piece of plastic that sits inside the uterus. Inside the Mirena™ is five years’ worth of progesterone hormone.
Every day the Mirena™ gives a tiny dose of progesterone to the uterus that prevents pregnancy and makes periods lighter. The hormone treats the uterus where it is needed but very little is absorbed out in to the rest of a woman’s body. This explains why side-effects such as weight gain are rare with a Mirena™ system.
I offer 'open access' appointments which means your GP can firstly assess your suitability for the Mirena™ IUD system. You can then come to our rooms with your script filled ready for the procedure. This means only one appointment with me, saving you time and money.
