Intra Uterine Device (IUD) or Mirena

The letters IUD stand for Intra Uterine Device. “Intrauterine” means “inside the uterus” (womb). An IUD is a small piece of plastic with copper wire wrapped around it. The Family Planning IUD leaflet can be downloaded below.

If you live in the ADHB region, you may be eligible for a free IUD. For more information, visit our website.
