Next generation contraceptive IUD
The IUB™ Ballerine® is a new, innovative, effective hormone-free IUD. The mechanism of action is comparable to other copper IUD’s and is effective for up to 5 years. The Ballerine has a narrow insertiontube and is easily inserted. It is especially suitable for young nulliparous women, who have not given birth yet.
The unique and flexible 3D-shape is especially designed to fit comfortably in the uterus.
Small and flexible IUD
The frame of Ballerine consists of a special shape memory alloy. Several copper pearls are strung on the flexible frame, coated with polymer. When the Ballerine is pushed out of the insertiontube, it curls into a sphere in the uterus. Due to the spherical shape, Ballerine will find an optimal position in the uterus.
