  • Liletta

    Liletta is the newest IUD that is similar to Mirena in both dosage and size. It's meant as a cheaper option for women without insurance and lasts up to 3 years (for now).

  • Mirena

    Mirena lasts for 5 years, releasing progestin which prevents ovulation and thickens the cervical mucus so sperm cannot reach the egg. Some doctors may not recommend Mirena to women who have not given birth as there may be difficulties with insertion related to a narrow cervix.
