An Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) is inserted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. Depending on the type of device, it will need to be changed after between three and five years.
One particular brand of IUCD is often used to reduce heavy bleeding during periods.
We no longer insert long-acting contraception devices like Jadelle or IUCDs. Please contact your nearest Family Planning Clinic if you are wanting to use this type of contraception.
