Treatment to Prevent Pregnancy

 

The hormonal IUD releases a tiny amount of the hormone progestin into your body over several years. Progestin is a hormone very similar to progesterone that our bodies make naturally. This hormone helps in preventing pregnancy, and can also help with painful or heavy periods while you’re using it. Know more here
