Kyleena® — a Non-daily Birth Control Option

Kyleena is a birth control option that she doesn’t have to think about taking every day

Patients using OCs may miss more pills than you realize1

In a study of patients using OCs:

57% of young women (ages 18-31) missed an average of 3 or more pills per cycle (N=82)

*A randomized controlled trial (N=82) tracked OC dosing for 3 months by electronic and wireless data collection. During the study period, half the participants (n=41) received a daily reminder text message.


A patient using OCs typically takes 1,826 once-daily pills over five years vs. one IUD insertion.

With Kyleena:

  • Counsel patients to check their threads once a month
  • Reexamine and evaluate patients 4 to 6 weeks after insertion and once a year thereafter, or more frequently if clinically indicated

Example of Nordette®-28 tablets over 5 years.2

IUD=intrauterine device; OC=oral contraception.

Reversibility: Fertility is rapidly restored once hormone-releasing IUDs like Kyleena are removed3,4

Based on a study of 1452 parous and nulliparous women aged 18-35 years3:

  • About 71% of 163 women wishing to become pregnant conceived within 12 months after removal of Kyleena
  • If Kyleena is removed and the patient does not want to become pregnant, she should use another method of birth control
  • Patients who do not want to become pregnant should be provided a new Kyleena or another type of contraception 
  • If a patient with regular cycles wants to start a different contraceptive method, time removal and initiation of the new method to ensure continuous contraception. Either remove Kyleena during the first 7 days of the menstrual cycle and start the new method immediately thereafter or start the new method at least 7 days prior to removing Kyleena if removal is to occur at other times during the cycle
  • If a patient with irregular cycles or amenorrhea wants to start a different contraceptive method, start the new method at least 7 days before removal
