Jaydess is used for the prevention of pregnancy (contraception) for up to three years. Jaydess is a T-shaped intrauterine delivery system (IUS) which after placement inside the womb slowly releases a small amount of the hormone levonorgestrel.
Jaydess works by reducing the monthly growth of the lining of the womb and thickening the cervical mucus. These actions prevent the sperm and egg from coming into contact and so prevent fertilization of an egg by sperm.
Frequently Asked Questions
Jaydess (marketed as Skyla in the United States) is a hormonal intrauterine device that is used in childbearing women to prevent pregnancy. Jaydess is a levonorgestrel-releasing system that is placed in the uterus by a healthcare professional to provide long-term contraceptive effects by continuously distributing levonorgestrel, a hormone that thickens the cervical mucus so as to impede the delivery of sperm to the egg and causes the lining of the uterus to become thinner. Additionally, the levonorgestrel ensures that any sperm that is able to make it to the uterus has inhibited mobility and function. This creates an unfavorable environment in the womb for fertilization and implantation to occur, which in turn helps prevent pregnancy.
The device is a soft, flexible, and T-shaped plastic frame. The vertical stem is surrounded by a reservoir that houses the levonorgestrel. Two fine plastic removal threads are attached to the end of the vertical stem; these are intended to be used to remove the system.
Jaydess is indicated to be used as a form of contraception for up to three years. Thereafter, the system should be replaced if continued contraception is desired. Patients should be counseled that Jaydess does not prevent against HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases.
Due to its small size, Jaydess is appropriate for use in younger women who have a smaller uterus and have not yet given birth. Jaydess is reliably effective. Jaydess provides younger women with the benefits of a long-term, highly reliable method of contraception that does not require taking daily pills or interrupting sex.
