The IUS is a small T-shaped plastic device that is put into your uterus and releases progestogen hormone which is similar to the hormone women naturally produce.
It thickens the mucus in the cervix preventing sperm reaching the egg and thins the lining of the uterus so it is less likely to accept a fertilised egg.
The IUS is fitted by a trained doctor or nurse. This can be done at either your GP practice or local sexual health clinic
