IUCD Insertions & Removal

An Intro Uterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) is a small device inserted into the uterus by a doctor.

It works by killing off sperm, as well as changing the lining of the uterus to prevent the attachment of a fertilised egg.  Once inserted the IUCD is 98% effective and will last for 5 years.

We can prescribe and insert IUCDs upon consultation.

There are some things that prevent the insertion of an IUCD;

  • Pelvic infections
  • Abnormal bleeding from the vagina
  • Under treatment for cancer
  • Congenital heart or valve disease

For more information about IUCDs and whether they would suit you as a form of contraception, talk to our staff when you make your appointment or during your consultation.
