IUD/IUC Insertion (Liletta, Skyla, or Paragard) Visits

If your visit is for the insertion of an IUD (intrauterine device) or IUC (intrauterine contraception), which are long-acting reversible birth control, a clinician will review your medical history, do a pelvic exam, and answer any questions you may have. If there is no medical reason that you shouldn’t have an IUD, the clinician will insert one at the visit. If you would like more information about IUDs and how they work, please visit our IUD info page.

If you are using condoms or a hormonal birth control method including pills, patch, ring, or the Depo-Provera shot, you can use them up until your visit. If you are not using hormonal birth control, it is best to abstain from vaginal intercourse for 14 days prior to your appointment. The IUD can act as emergency contraception if inserted within 5 days.

Please eat or drink something before your visit. If you would like, you can take up to 800 mg of ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment.

Please note: you will speak with a health care professional at your appointment about your medical information, all of your options, and you will be able to ask questions.
