What is it?
Liletta is a tiny, T-shaped, soft plastic device that fits in your uterus. Super cute! It has the hormone progestin in the T. This hormone is slowly released in your uterus. It changes the chemistry of your uterus and makes a plug that stops the sperm and egg from meeting. It also thins the lining of your uterus, which makes your periods lighter. A-mazzzing. It’s a great choice if you’re forgetful, on the move, or don’t want to carry around anything in your bag.
How effective is it?
Less than 1 pregnancy per 100 people.
How often do I take it?
