Jaydess is a small plastic T-shaped device that your doctor will insert intro your womb – it releases the hormone progestogen to prevent you from getting pregnant (How? Read here). Some women do find the insertion and removal a little painful (many also don’t) – your doctor may advise you to take a painkiller just before you have it inserted or removed.
The Jaydess IUS is ok for women who otherwise cannot use the combined pill. Women using Jaydess may experience lighter periods, or their periods stop all together, so it may be recommended to women with heavy or painful periods.
Although the Jaydess IUS is suitable for most women, you should always double check with your doctor if you have or have had any health conditions.
