How do I get Gyn-CS as contraception after birth?

GYN-CS was specifically designed for insertion during caesarean birth. Logically, the indication for a caesarean section (or choice) must already have been made. If you are planning a caesarean section or you are interested in immediate contraception in case of an emergency caesarean section, please consult your physician or hospital.

What is the contraceptive effect of Gyn-CS after cesarean section?

Contraceptive efficacy of Gyn-CS

The contraceptive effect of copper has long been known and tested. It is especially safe because it creates a double effect. On the one hand, copper acts as a spermicide, immobilizing the sperm and preventing its penetration into the uterus or ovaries. On the other hand, the foreign body in the uterus triggers a kind of foreign body reaction, which would also prevent the implantation of an egg. This double effect makes contraception with copper at birth more than 99.5% safe, while acting without any hormones or systemic side effects.

Can I have more children after Gyn-CS?

Yes, you can. The advantage of Gyn-CS is that it is an excellent reversible alternative to sterilization, with long duration of action (10 years for the longest-acting version).

Due to its safety and long action, fertility is not impaired at any time. Gyn-CS can be removed in a doctor’s office and you can get pregnant again immediately. Gyn-CS therefore is a long-term, highly reliable, reversible contraceptive suitable following caesarean birth.
