With Kyleena, you get:
Birth control that’s over 99% effective for each year of use 98.5% effective over 5 years
The smallest 5-year IUD
Continuous low dose of hormones

You should make sure Kyleena is in place with a monthly thread check. Your healthcare provider can show you how. If you don't feel the threads or feel more than just the threads, call your healthcare provider. Kyleena may not be in the right position and may not prevent pregnancy. Use non-hormonal back-up birth control (such as condoms and spermicide) until your healthcare provider can check that Kyleena is still in the right place.
Kyleena is FDA-approved and is available by prescription only.
Where does Kyleena go?
Kyleena is placed in your uterus by your healthcare provider. Placement involves a nonsurgical procedure that takes just a few minutes. In 4 to 6 weeks, you should return to your healthcare provider for a follow-up visit.
You may experience pain, bleeding or dizziness during and after placement. If your symptoms do not pass within 30 minutes after placement, Kyleena may not have been placed correctly. Your healthcare provider will examine you to see if Kyleena needs to be removed or replaced.
