Skyla is a type of intrauterine device, also known as an IUD. But what is that, exactly?
An IUD is a small, t-shaped device that’s placed in your uterus by your healthcare provider during a routine visit.
Getting an IUD is nonsurgical and typically takes just a few minutes. Once in place, it provides continuous, highly effective birth control.
PARAGARD is a “T” shaped device made of soft, flexible plastic and copper (176 mg of copper wire wrapped on the vertical stem of the“T” shaped frame, and a 68.7 mg copper collar on each horizontal arm).
PARAGARD is over 99% effective and completely hormone free. It helps prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years, but your healthcare professional can remove it at any time.
