The IUB Ballerine is a birth control method that requires no hormones and is effective for up to 5 years. The IUB Ballerine works along the same principle as other intrauterine devices and prevents pregnancy locally – within the uterus 4
How does the IUB Ballerine work?
As soon as the IUB Ballerine is inserted in your uterus, it starts releasing small amounts of copper to provide continuous birth control for up to 5 years. The method of action is similar to standard copper intrauterine devices.4
Due to the special form and material, the IUB Ballerine conforms to the shape of the uterus and minimizes risk of damage and irritation.
Small & Flexible
The IUB Ballerine is one third to half the size of traditional intrauterine devices and can be easily inserted.5 The efficiency of the IUB Ballerine is over 99% 2 in pregnancy prevention.
