What is GyneFix
GyneFix is a very small copper-based intrauterine device (IUD) that offers over 99% effectiveness at preventing pregnancies over five years. It is smaller than any other IUD. The size of an IUD is closely related to the side effects it causes, so that smaller devices are better tolerated with less effect on the amount of menstrual blood loss. The small GyneFix does not increase menstrual blood. This is an advantage over conventional IUD's that can induce heavy periods. Heavy menstrual bleeding is the most common cause for the removal of an IUD.
Why was GyneFix developed?
Doctors have always considered the IUD to be one of the most reliable forms of contraception. However older intrauterine devices (IUD's) were not altogether favoured by women, many of whom complained of pain, discomfort, heavy bleeding and unintended expulsion in use.
The innovative GyneFix IUD has been specially designed to be virtually trouble free whilst maintaining the superior levels of reliability, ease of use and spontaneity in relationships which women and their partners welcome.
More than 20 years of research and development have gone into today's GyneFix. During this time over 20,000 years of experience with GyneFix have been studied, covering women of all ages, both with children and currently childless.
100% Hormone free
GyneFix is also 100% hormone free. This means that there is no impact on the natural cycle of the body and thus no side effects related to hormonal intake.
