WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has officially approved Bayer AG’s hormonal contraceptive device, Kyleena.
The plastic T-shaped intrauterine device (IUD) was approved in mid-September.
A long-acting reversible contraceptive, this device releases hormone levonorgestrel, stopping the womb from thickening, and thus, preventing pregnancy. It will be made available in October, according to Reuters.
Bayer claims the device has been proven to be more effective in comparison to pills and patches. Kyleena adds to a suite of Bayer hormonal IUDs, including Mirena and Skyla.
“With the approval of Kyleena, women have an important new birth control option that provides pregnancy prevention for up to five years,” Dario Mirski, M.D., senior vice president for the Americas, Bayer, said in a statement. “Kyleena expands Bayer’s IUD portfolio and is part of our commitment to provide women and their healthcare providers with a variety of contraceptive choices to meet their individual needs.”
In February 2015, the FDA also approved Liletta, a hormonal IUD made by Actavis Plc, now known as Allergan Plc., according to Reuters.
