Hormonal IUD

Hormonal IUD

A hormonal IUD releases small amounts of a progestin hormone called levonorgestrel into the uterus. This thickens the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. Furthermore it thins the lining of the uterus preventing implantation and inhibits sperm from reaching and/or fertilizing an egg.

The Mirena IUD is very effective and can be used for a period of up to five years. Of course you can also use it for a shorter period for example between two pregnancies. You can get a Mirena IUD at the pharmacy with a prescription and it will cost around €160. You can get the prescription from our assistent, your midwife or huisarts.

Kyleena is a newer version of the Mirena IUD. It works in the same way and has the same effectiveness of preventing pregnancy but has a lower hormone level (Levonorgestrel). It will cost €140 and has become the number one choice of hormonal IUD unless you suffer from severe blood loss during your period. In that case the Mirena will be more effective.

If you do not have extra coverage with your health insurance you will have to pay for an IUD yourself. You can check with your insurance if, and under what conditions, an IUD is covered.

Beste cliënt,

Op dit moment mogen wij tot onze spijt geen echo's op eigen verzoek (pret-echo's) meer uitvoeren. 

In verband met het niet kunnen handhaven van de 1,5 meter tijdens het maken van een echo willen wij jullie verzoeken om een mondkapje mee te nemen naar de echo.

Daarnaast mag er naast de zwangere maximaal 1 persoon meekomen naar de echo. Neem dus geen kinderen mee! Wij vragen jullie om niet te vroeg te komen zodat er niet teveel mensen tegelijk in de wachtkamer zitten.

Bij klachten als hoesten, niezen, koorts en neusverkoudheid vragen wij je om je afspraak telefonisch te verzetten. Een partner met klachten mag niet mee naar binnen.

Alvast bedankt voor jullie medewerking.
met vriendelijke groet,
medewerkers van Echo Amsterdam

Dear cliënt,

NEW: We regret to inform you we are not allowed tot perform any scans upon request.

Due to the inability to maintain the 1.5 meters range while making an ultrasound, we want to ask you to bring a  facemask to the ultrasound.

You are allowed to bring maximum one extra person besides yourself to your scan. You are not allowed to bring your children.

Please don't arrive too early to prevent too many people in the waiting room at the same time.
When you or your partner are coughing, sneezing or having a fever, we ask you to reschedule your appointment by telephone.

Thanks for your coöperation,
best regards,
the team of Echo Amsterdam
