How do I get GYN-CS®?


GYN-CS® is specifically designed for insertion during caesarean section. 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® following ceasarean 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. On the other hand, the foreign body in the uterus triggers a kind of foreign body reaction, which would also prevent the implantation. This double effect makes copper contraception more than 99.5% safe, while acting without any hormones or systemic side effects.

What if I want to get pregnant again?

One of the advantages of GYN-CS® is that it is an excellent reversible contraceptive method. GYN-CS® is easily removed by a healthcare professional with an immediate return to fertility. Additionally, GYN-CS® 10, with a duration of action of 10 years, is a reversible alternative to sterilization.
