Coils and IUS

We also provide intrauterine devices and systems (Coil/Mirena).

Mirena, Benilexa  and  Levosert IUS are now effective for contraception for 8 years.

Please only book for a refit of your IUS if it has been in situ for nearly 8 years. If it was fitted after age 45 then it does not need changing and you should arrange removal at age 55. 

We can only insert Intrauterine systems (IUS) for contraception.

If you require a coil for reasons other than contraception, please see your GP. We do not fit coils for HRT and we cannot change them earlier if your bleeding pattern changes before 8 years.
