What are some expected Kyleena Side Effects?

Some Kylneena common side-effects include bleeding, pain, dizziness, and headache for a few days after its insertion. These symptoms usually resolve on their own. Other Kyleena side-effects include:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Recurrent infection or inflammation of the pelvic organs
  • Breast pain
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Expulsion
  • Cysts on the ovaries
  • Perforation
  • Missed menstrual periods

Can Kyleena Cause Weight Gain?

Studies have shown that weight gain with Kyleena IUD is rare because Kyleena is an intrauterine device and these devies are usually not associated with weight gain.

Weight gain is often experienced due to water retention caused by progestin in the patch instead of weight gain due to fat accumulation.

When is Kyleena a better option than pills and other birth control methods like condoms? 

Kyleena is the best option for women who have never given birth. It is also a better option than pills and other birth control methods in the mentioned cases:

  • Age above 35 years
  • History of smoking
  • Breast cancer
  • History of deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism
  • High blood pressure
  • Active liver disease
  • Hereditary disorders affecting the production of cholesterol
  • Irregular menstrual cycle 

For example, birth control pills must be taken daily to prevent pregnancy. Condoms must be available and worn before intercourse to prevent pregnancy. A diaphragm needs to be onhand and inserted prior to sex to avoid pregnancy. All of these concerns are erased with Kyleena, as it eliminates the need to prepare for sex beforehand.

A trial conducted by Kyleena found that 71% of women who wanted to get pregnant after the removal of their IUD were able to do so within 12 months.

This is encouraging news for those who desire a long-term birth control option while still maintaining the ability to have a child in the future. (source: Huffington Post)
