Insertion of Interuterine device (IUD)
The two main types of IUDs available in the market in Australia is the Multiload IUD (non-hormonal) and Mirena IUD (hormonal-progesterone impregnated). These devices can usually be inserted in the uterus under a local anaesthetic. However, in some patients this is not a safe option and a general anaesthetic may be required.
