Levocept Study Image

The purpose of this study is to investigate a new form of hormonal contraception called LevoCept® as a possible long-acting and reversible hormonal IUD.  LevoCept® is an investigational product that is being developed as a possible new method of birth control. An investigational product is one that has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for sale in the United States, this study tests its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy. This method of birth control is similar to currently approved hormonal IUDs like the MIRENA® (Bayer), LILETTA® (Allergan), and SKYLA® (Bayer). The LevoCept® IUD is different because it is made of a more flexible material with a spring-type shape, which conforms to the shape of your uterus with the goal of providing comfort during device insertion.
