We're inviting women with heavy menstrual bleeding who are not interested in being pregnant in the next 10 months. The goal of this study is to see if an intrauterine device (IUD) is safe and effective in women with heavy menstrual bleeding.

This study will use an IUD that is already on the market in the United States and approved by the FDA, called Liletta®. An IUD is a device placed in the uterus to prevent pregnancy. We want to know if an IUD can be a safe and effective treatment for women with heavy menstrual bleeding.

This clinical research study happens at the UC Davis Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. You will receive the Liletta® IUD and specialty care at no cost, and compensation for your time is available.
