INDICATION FOR SKYLA

Skyla® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) is a hormone-releasing IUD that prevents pregnancy for up to 3 years.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
  • If you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers, don't use Skyla. Less than 1% of users get a serious pelvic infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
  • If you have persistent pelvic or stomach pain or if Skyla comes out, tell your healthcare provider (HCP). If Skyla comes out, use back-up birth control. Skyla may attach to or go through the uterus and cause other problems.
