Skyla is a female contraceptive that contains levonorgestrel, a female hormone. This is an intrauterine device (IUD) that changes the uterine lining and cervical mucus. The hormone works by preventing most of the sperm from reaching the uterus and/or preventing the attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus.
Here’s a list of Skyla prices:
Intrauterine devices have been in use for several years.
As an IUD, Skyla is a small and flexible plastic T-shaped device placed into the uterus. Once in its proper place, it slowly releases levonorgestrel, a hormone that prevents pregnancy for the next three years. Only small amounts of levonorgestrel will reach the bloodstream so it’s safe to use for most women.
Women of childbearing age can use it whether they have had children or not, too. But only a doctor should insert the device into a patient’s vagina and placed in the uterus. The insertion should happen within seven days after the start of a patient’s menstrual period.
Skyla isn’t a form of emergency birth control, unlike the so-called morning-after pill. This is because levonorgestrel is released in a gradual manner over the 3-year period.
During the insertion, you may feel slight pain and/or dizziness, as well as minor vaginal bleeding. But when the insertion has been completed, these symptoms should be gone. You must inform your doctor if these symptoms persist 30 minutes after insertion.
Skyla isn’t recommended for women who have pelvic infections, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and other health issues with the cervix or uterus. Women with uterine or breast cancer, a weak immune system, and liver disease including a liver tumor shouldn’t use it, too.
