Gynefix works like a regular IUD but has a flexible row of copper beads instead of a rigid frame. Itâ€™s attached to the uterus wall by a fine nylon thread, which makes it less likely to be expelled by the body.
Considerations: offers no protection from sexually transmitted infections/HIV/AIDS. There is a higher risk of infection for women with more than one partner.
Available from? It must be fitted by a doctor. This can be done by your GP or at a family planning clinic.
