The Ballerine consists of a number of copper balls strung on a flexible frame with 'memory shape'. As soon as the frame comes out of the insertion sleeve, it curls up in the uterus to a convex shape. Because of this shape, the Ballerine constantly finds its ideal position in the uterus.
The hormone-free Ballerine IUD is a reliable and durable contraceptive for women who do not appreciate the use of added hormones. So ideal for women who want to preserve their natural cycle and have carefree sex. The Ballerine is placed by your family doctor, gynaecologist or midwife and only needs to be replaced after 5 years. Of course, you can also use Ballerine for a shorter period of time, for example between two pregnancies.
The Ballerine IUD gradually releases a little copper. Copper paralyses the sperm cells, which means that the sperm cell is no longer able to fertilise a ripe egg.
The Ballerine is suitable for all women who have mild or normal periods. Read detailed information on www.ballerine.nl.
