Physicians agree that contraception with an intrauterine device (an IUD or coil) is the most effective reversible option after giving birth. However, IUDs face major problems when inserted immediately after a caesarian section when the uterus is enlarged: they can fall out, be displaced or embed in the wall of the uterus as the uterus contracts to its normal size. Furthermore, this can lead to pain and bleeding with rates of expulsion and displacement up to 40% or more being reported.
This is not the case with Gyn-CS as it is specifically designed for caesarean sections. It is attached directly to the upper part of the uterus during the caesarean section operation and then, depending on the model which is inserted, acts as a contraceptive for up to 3 or 10 years. Also, Gyn-CS releases no hormones. It acts, just like the conventional copper IUD, by releasing copper ions that impact on sperm. On top of that, its very slim and flexible design adapts to any size of uterus – both the uterus that is still expanded due to the pregnancy as well as the uterus that has regained its normal size after 6-8 weeks.
