Un dispositif hormonal intra-utérin (DIU avec lévonorgestrel) est un petit dispositif composé d’une matière plastique souple et d’une hormone appelée lévonorgestrel, qui est inséré dans l’utérus par un fournisseur de soins de santé primaires (médecin de famille ou infirmière praticienne). Il sert à prévenir les grossesses. Le dépliant explique comment fonctionne le DIU avec lévonorgestrel, quels sont ses avantages et ses inconvénients et ce qui se passe quand il est inséré dans l’utérus, de même que le déplacement, la perte et le retrait du DIU avec lévonorgestrel. Le dépliant liste aussi les symptômes qui requièrent immédiatement des soins médicaux.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2006, "Hormonal (levonorgestrel) Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)". A hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) is a small device made of flexible plastic with a hormone called levonorgestrel that is placed inside the uterus by a primary health care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner). It is used to prevent pregnancy. This pamphlet explains how a hormonal IUD works, the pros and cons of a hormonal IUD, what will happen when the IUD is inserted, movement or loss of the IUD, and IUD removal. A list of symptoms that require immediate medical attention is also provided.
