What is a hormonal spiral?

Hormone spiral, which prevents sperm from reaching the egg and fertilization by placing it in the uterus, is a birth control method preferred by women. With the hormonal spiral, women have the chance to prevent and delay their pregnancy for 5 years. During this period, it is also possible to remove the attached spiral, which will be discussed with the doctor.

It is released into the uterus with the hormone progesterone in the hormonal spiral. This method is a more harmless method than other birth control methods used in the form of injections and pills.
