Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are a highly effective and convenient contraceptive solution for family planning. We offer a comprehensive range of IUD options to cater to your specific needs:

  • Hormonal IUDs: Devices such as Mirena and Skyla release a controlled amount of progestin to prevent pregnancy. They are highly effective and can last for several years, offering a low-maintenance, reversible, and discreet contraceptive option.
  • Copper IUDs: Copper IUDs like Paragard do not contain hormones. Instead, they release copper ions that create an inhospitable environment for sperm, preventing fertilization. Copper IUDs are a great choice for those who prefer hormone-free contraception.
  • Long-Lasting Protection: IUDs provide long-lasting protection, with some options offering effective contraception for up to 3 to 10 years, depending on the type. This makes them suitable for individuals seeking a low-maintenance family planning method.
  • Reversible and Convenient: One of the key advantages of IUDs is their reversibility. If you decide to conceive in the future, your fertility can be restored quickly after the IUD is removed.
  • Low Maintenance: IUDs require minimal day-to-day attention, offering peace of mind and reliability without the need for daily or monthly maintenance.

Our knowledgeable healthcare professionals will work closely with you to discuss the various IUD options, helping you select the one that aligns with your lifestyle, preferences, and family planning goals. IUDs are a safe, convenient, and highly effective choice for many, and we are here to provide the information and support you need to make an informed decision.

Implantable Contraceptives

At Astra Health and Wellness, we are proud to offer cutting-edge implantable contraceptive options like Nexplanon. This subdermal implant provides highly effective, long-term family planning solutions. Nexplanon is a small, flexible rod inserted under the skin of your upper arm, releasing a controlled amount of progestin to inhibit ovulation and thicken cervical mucus, effectively preventing pregnancy. It offers up to three years of pregnancy prevention with minimal maintenance, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a hassle-free and reversible method of birth control.

Our experienced healthcare professionals will discuss the benefits and potential side effects of Nexplanon to ensure it aligns with your family planning goals. If you are looking for a reliable, discreet, and long-lasting contraceptive option, Nexplanon may be the perfect choice for you.
