What to expect at your placement appointment
Having Skyla placed takes just a few minutes. Getting Skyla is nonsurgical and is done by your OB/GYN during a routine office visit. Other qualified healthcare providers, such as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, may also be able to place Skyla.
Everyone is different, and some women may experience discomfort or spotting during or after placement. These symptoms should go away shortly. If they don't, contact your OB/GYN. Within 4 to 6 weeks you should return for a follow-up visit to make sure that everything is okay.
Before having Skyla placed, tell your OB/GYN
- Have had a heart attack
- Have had a stroke
- Were born with heart disease or have problems with your heart valves
- Have problems with blood clotting or take medicine to reduce clotting
- Have high blood pressure
- Recently had a baby or if you are breastfeeding
- Have severe migraine headaches
