Comparing IUDs : Copper, Mirena and Jaydess

2014 September 19

One of the most common issues clients come to see us about is longer term, highly effective birth control. Undeniably, intrauterine devices (IUDs) fit this bill for many clients. They are  highly effective, can be used as long term methods (3 years for Jaydess and up to 5 years for Copper or Mirena), and reversible.

Interested clients often come into see us with lots of questions (which we love!) about the differences and similarities in IUDs and, not surprising, our IUD page is one of the most popular pages on our website. So with the recent addition of Jaydess to our IUD choices in Canada, we’ve come up with an easy to use IUD comparison chart that we hope will give interested clients a simple but effective overview!
