 1  Excessive bleeding Sciatic pain, numbness and tingling in arms and legs, migraines increased, back pain, abdominal pain, hair loss, low sex drive Insertion pain was terrible for 4 months . I was trying to avoid a hysterectomy but I am not sure this is better. F 47 1 years
 3  Heavy periods and birth control after about 1.5 years I started getting yeast infections right around when my cycle would start. Took diflucan so much that now it doesn't work for me. Going to get it removed today! the insertion hurt so so bad but I immediately stopped bleeding and no spotting the whole time I had the iud. I did get some pretty bad cramps associated with my cycle and breast tenderness as well. It was amazing up until the yeast infections started. F 33 2 years
 1  To stop heavy menstrual cycles After a brief couple weeks of bleeding after first having the liletta inserted my periods got much lighter and cramping was minimal. It seems to work great! After having liletta in for 1 1/2 years I am now experiencing abnormal bleeding and have been bleeding for a MONTH! Waiting to get tests back from GYN but Iím considering going to the ER to have it removed. After the 1 1/2 ur mark I should not be experiencing this abnormal bleeding. Iíve been bleeding for a month now. GYN is still trying to figure out why F 44 1 years

LILETTA  (LEVONORGESTREL):  This product is a small, flexible device that is placed in the womb (uterus) to prevent pregnancy. It is used by women who want to use a reversible birth control method that works for a long time (up to 4 years). The device slowly releases a hormone (levonorgestrel) that is similar to a hormone that women normally make. This device helps prevent pregnancy by making cervical fluid thicker, interfering with sperm movement, and reducing sperm survival to prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization). It also changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. This device may also stop the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), but this is not the way it works in most women. Using this product does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
