FSRH | Levosert – a levonorgestrel intrauterine device (LNG-IUS)

Updated March 2019

This is a new product review from the FSRH. Levosert is an LNG-IUS,  which is the same as Mirena.

It seems to be as effective as Mirena and to have similar side-effects.

It is now licensed for 5 yrs of use for contraception (originally it was only licensed for 3 yrs of use).

It costs £66, so is cheaper than Mirena at £88.

Another disadvantage is that it is not licensed for endometrial protection with HRT.

Remember that Jaydess, another LNG-IUS, and Kyleena is also available.

    Interesting choice of picture for a post about Levosert as the IUCD shown is a copper IUCD and from the position is probably perforated the uterus

      Thanks Ruth, completely fair comment, and completely my fault. If you happen to have a copyright-free image we could use, or know where we could get one, please let me know!
