Less menstrual bleeding with a frameless IUD
The impact on MBL with copper IUDs can be minimized by reducing the surface area of the foreign body. Reduction of MBL, without causing amenorrhea, can be obtained by adding levonorgestrel. The small frameless GyneFix IUD minimizes the impact on MBL.
“Maximum comfort during prolonged IUD use and a high continuation rate is achieved by using an IUD of which the greatest transverse dimension of the IUD is equal or slightly in excess of the fundal transverse dimension” (H. Hasson). These geometric relationships promote IUD retention and stability while minimizing endometrial/myometrial trauma.
Size and shape are important considerations doctors should make prior to selecting an IUD.

The aim of our research is to maximize continuation of use of the intrauterine device (IUD) by minimizing side effects in order to reduce unintended pregnancies. Many IUD designs and shapes are a direct result of clinicians efforts to improve the performance of IUDs and reduce the overall level of their side effects. The IUD-cavity relationship and the tolerability of the device is paramount to achieving this aim.
The Ideal Cycle
In his clinic in Ghent, Dr. Wildemeersch organizes training sessions for doctors from inside and outside Belgium, interested in learning the anchoring technique of frameless intrauterine devices.
The clinic is specialized in providing precision intrauterine contraception to fulfill women's needs.
