IUD/ IUS Coil Fitting & Removal

19.05.2018 Category: Women's Health Author: Dr Belinda Griffiths

At Fleet Street Clinic, we have seen a rise in the number of women opting to use the coil as their contraception of choice.

We have 2 options available, the Copper IUD and the Mirena IUS. Both options are fitted into the womb and are 99% effective against unwanted pregnancies, working straight away.

The main difference between the IUD and the IUS is what it releases into the womb. The IUD releases copper and the IUS releases the hormone progestogen. In most cases, the choice is down to personal preference but you can speak with our nurse/ GP in your appointment if you’re undecided which option you’d prefer.

The coil is a popular choice as it works straight away after insertion, it doesn’t interrupt sex and doesn’t interrupt other medications. In addition, for those who’re planning a family, once removed, it is possible to get pregnant straight away. It is also safe to use if planning on breastfeeding.
The coil requires a removal and replacement after a set time period and is dependant on the type of coil fitted.

  • Copper IUD – Lasts for 5 to 10 years before replacement.
  • Mirena IUS – Lasts for 3 to 5 years before replacement.

Your coil can be removed at any time by a trained doctor or nurse. Find out more about the contraceptive coil. 

We strongly believe that women shouldn’t have to wait unnecessarily to have a coil either fitted or removed.
