LOW IN HORMONES

Kyleena contains a hormone called levonorgestrel, a type of progestin, that is often used in birth control pills. Because Kyleena releases levonorgestrel directly into your uterus, only small amounts of the hormone enter your blood.

Kyleena is made of soft, flexible plastic.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING PLACEMENT

Everyone is different, and some women may experience discomfort, dizziness, or spotting during or after placement. These symptoms should go away within 30 minutes. If they don’t, contact your healthcare provider.

HOW KYLEENA WORKS

Kyleena is thought to work in several ways, including thinning the lining of the uterus, thickening the cervical mucus, inhibiting sperm movement and reducing sperm survival. These actions work together to prevent pregnancy.

During an in-office visit, your healthcare provider will slide a slim plastic tube containing Kyleena into your uterus, then remove it, leaving Kyleena in place, and cut the threads to the right length. Placement only takes a few minutes.

SOME COMMON SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE


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.

INDICATION FOR KYLEENA

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

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

  • If you have a pelvic 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 or if Kyleena comes out, tell your healthcare provider (HCP). If Kyleena comes out, use back-up birth control. Kyleena may attach to 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 STDs.

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