Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

IUD insertions and removals are now available at East Ringwood Clinic.

  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are small devices that are put into the uterus (womb).
  • They are used as contraception (prevent pregnancy) and can also be used as a treatment for painful periods and/or excessive bleeding.
  • Hormonal IUDs (MirenaTM) and non hormonal IUDs (Copper) are available.
  • Both types are very effective, and can stay in place for five to eight years.

Intrauterine device (IUD) insertions and removals are performed by Dr Huei-Min Chen
