Intrauterine Devices (IUD's)

When it comes to family planning, intrauterine devices (IUDs) offer a highly effective and convenient contraceptive solution. At Astra Health and Wellness, we provide  a comprehensive range of IUD options to cater to your specific needs. These include:

  1. Hormonal IUDs: Hormonal IUDs, 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.

  2. 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 can be a great choice for those who prefer hormone-free contraception.

  3. Long-Lasting Protection: IUDs are known for their long-lasting protection, with some options providing effective contraception for up to 3 to 10 years, depending on the type you choose. This makes them a suitable choice for individuals seeking a low-maintenance family planning method.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 at Astra Health and Wellness 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're here to provide the information and support you need to make an informed decision. Contact us to learn more and explore the best IUD option for you.

Implantables

At Astra Health and Wellness, we are proud to offer cutting-edge implantable contraceptive options, such as Nexplanon, to provide you with highly effective, long-term family planning solutions. Nexplanon is a discreet and convenient subdermal implant that offers up to three years of pregnancy prevention. This small, flexible rod is inserted under the skin of your upper arm and releases a controlled amount of progestin to inhibit ovulation and thicken cervical mucus, effectively preventing pregnancy. Its low-maintenance design means you can enjoy the benefits of contraception without the need for daily or monthly attention. It's an ideal choice for those seeking a hassle-free and reversible method of birth control. Our experienced healthcare professionals are here to discuss the benefits, potential side effects, and ensure that Nexplanon aligns with your family planning goals. If you're looking for a reliable, discreet, and long-lasting contraceptive option, Nexplanon may be the perfect choice for you. Contact us today to learn more and explore this innovative family planning solution.
