Hormonal IUD

Conditions Related to Hormonal IUD

While hormonal IUDs have gained widespread acceptance as an effective and easy-to-use method of birth control, they may also be helpful in combating endometriosis, a painful condition in which the uterine lining grows outside of the uterus, eventually leading to scarring and adhesion. By releasing a form of progestin into the uterus, the hormonal IUD can help shrink endometriosis growths and reduce the amount of pain many women with this condition suffer.

In addition, hormonal IUDs can also help alleviate cramping and heavy menstrual bleeding.
