Kyleena intrauterine system

This is a statement from Jan 2018, updated Mar 2019, from FSRH giving information about Kyleena, a new levonorgestrel (LNG) containing intrauterine system (IUS).

What is Kyleena?

Kyleena is an IUS. It contains levonorgestrel, like Mirena does.

It is licensed for five years of use, but only for contraception. It is not licensed for use in heavy menstrual bleeding, nor for the progesterone component of HRT.

What other IUS are there?

"The NASGP and the GP locum chambers that I'm in have provided invaluable assistance both before and through Covid-19 to me as a full-time GP locum. All aspects of locum work have been made easier as a result of membership and the chamber's support structure - from accessing work, to ensuring invoicing and documentation is all sorted, and access to other locums as peer support. Having a chamber manager means I feel more secure and can devote more of my energy on my clinical work."
