Meet Kyleena

The smallest
5year IUDIUD = Intrauterine Device

You know what makes sense for yourself. So when it comes to birth control, you should go with what makes sense for your life and your body.

If you're looking for a highly effective, low-hormone option, get to know Kyleena®:


  • Over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy for each year of use, and 98.6% effective over 5 years

  • Can be used whether or not you’ve had a baby

  • Can be removed by your healthcare professional anytime in case your plans change

Who should not use Kyleena?

Kyleena is not right for everyone. Do not use Kyleena if you:


  • are or might be pregnant; Kyleena cannot be used as an emergency contraceptive

  • have a serious pelvic infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or have had a PID in the past unless you have had a normal pregnancy after the infection went away

  • have an untreated genital infection now

  • have had a serious genital infection in the past 3 months after a pregnancy

  • can get infections easily. For example, if you:

    • have multiple sexual partners or your partner has multiple sexual partners

    • have problems with your immune system

    • use or abuse intravenous drugs

  • have or suspect you might have cancer of the uterus or cervix

  • have bleeding from the vagina that has not been explained

  • have liver disease or a liver tumor

  • have breast cancer or any other cancer that is sensitive to progestin (a female hormone), now or in the past

  • have an intrauterine device in your uterus already

  • have a condition of the uterus that changes the shape of the uterine cavity, such as large fibroid tumors

  • are allergic to levonorgestrel, silicone, polyethylene, silver, silica, barium sulfate, polypropylene, or copper phthalocyanine


Millions of women have already used IUDs—including women who have had a baby and those who haven’t

Kyleena® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) is a hormone-releasing IUD that prevents pregnancy for up to 5 years.



  • If you have an untreated genital infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers, don't use Kyleena. Less than 1% of users get a serious pelvic infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
  • If you have persistent pelvic or stomach pain, excessive bleeding after placement or if Kyleena comes out, tell your healthcare professional (HCP). If Kyleena comes out, call your HCP and avoid intercourse or use non-hormonal back-up birth control (such as condoms or spermicide). Kyleena may go into or go through the uterus and cause other problems.
  • Pregnancy while using Kyleena is uncommon but can be life threatening and may result in loss of pregnancy or fertility.
  • Ovarian cysts may occur but usually disappear.
  • Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first 3 to 6 months and remain irregular. Periods over time usually become shorter, lighter, or may stop.


Kyleena does not protect against HIV or STIs.


Only you and your HCP can decide if Kyleena is right for you. Kyleena is available by prescription only.
