IUDs are T-shaped intrauterine devices (IUD) that over 150 million people with a uterus world-wide have trusted as the most effective form of birth control. Depending on which IUD you choose, it can provide birth control for 3, 5 or even 10 years. There are two main types of IUDs available in Canada.
In Canada, there are two IUD brands available – Kyleena and Mirena – both of which can be used for 5 years in duration but have varying amounts of progestin hormone. Both are fully covered by OHIP+ or NIHB.
