The IUDs we have available for teens include Mirena, Kyleena, Paraguard and Liletta. Mirena and Liletta are essentially the same; they’re just made by a different manufacturer. Kyleena is a slightly smaller IUD and contains fewer hormones than Mirena/Liletta. However, smaller IUDs can sometimes cause more breakthrough bleeding (spotting between menstrual periods) than the larger ones. With all of the hormonal devices, your period may become shorter and/or lighter. Some people will eventually stop getting their periods at all. Paraguard is a non-hormonal IUD (it uses copper instead) that lasts longer (up to 10 years). Although it’s non-hormonal, it can cause heavier bleeding and cramping. All of these options could be great options for teens; it just depends on your medical history. We encourage you to make an appointment to further discuss your options with a medical provider!
