Flexi-T®

A perfect fit for your womb

Why choose Flexi-T?


The Flexi-T was developed on the basis of accredited studies, using data obtained from uterine cavity measurements taken with the Kurz Cavimeter. The studies included 795 fertile women of all ages and parous categories (no previous pregnancies, one previous pregnancy, or multiple previous pregnancies). Based on the data, it can be concluded that the dimensions of the uterus are affected by the number of previous pregnancies. The Flexi-T was developed on the basis of this knowledge. There are two different sizes: the standard IUD for women who have already had children, and the smaller IUD for women who have not given birth before.

The optimal shape and the flexible material reduces the risk of expulsion and minimises potential side effects, like spotting and discomfort. The narrow insertion tube without a plunger makes the Flexi-T easy to insert, minimising discomfort, and removal is easy and relatively painless. There is a near-zero risk of perforation due to the rounded corners of the IUD and use of the narrow insertion tube without a plunger. The Flexi-T was designed to fit the curve at the top of the uterus, and is extremely flexible. User-friendly and simple, the Flexi-T accommodates the needs of doctors as well as the women who wear it.

A clinical trial involving 1150 women of all ages and parous categories (no pregnancies, one pregnancy, multiple pregnancies) concluded that the Flexi-T is safe and offers women a high standard of contraceptive protection.

The Flexi-T is a hormone-free IUD that has no effect on the body’s natural hormonal balance. As soon as the Flexi-T is inserted, it offers immediate protection, and the woman is fertile again as soon as the IUD is removed.

Durable, reliable, hormone-free

 

Which Flexi-T models are available?


Flexi-T is available in 4 models: the Flexi-T 300, Flexi-T 300D, Flexi-T+ 300, and Flexi-T+ 380.
Flexi-T has a comfortable solution to suit most woman.


 Flexi-T 300

The Flexi-T 300 is the smallest copper IUD available (29 mm long and 23 mm wide, wrapped in 300 mm² of copper wire). It is ideal for women who have not given birth (yet), since research shows that nulliparous women have smaller uterine cavities. This is also the ideal solution for women in menopause who still want to use contraception. The IUD is easy to insert, and insertion is almost completely painless.

Since the Flexi-T does not contain any hormones, the body’s natural hormonal balance is not disrupted and the menstrual cycle remains normal.

The Flexi-T 300 offers 5 years of optimal contraceptive protection.

 Flexi-T 300D

The Flexi-T 300D is the smallest copper IUD available (29 mm long and 23 mm wide, wrapped in 300 mm² of copper wire), similar to the Flexi-T 300. The difference between the Flexi-T 300 and the Flexi-T 300D is how the copper is distributed. In the Flexi-T 300D, the vertical axis is wrapped in 220 mm² of copper wire, supplemented by copper on the arms of the T-shape for a total of 300 mm² of copper, boosting effectiveness. The Flexi-T 300D is ideal for women and girls in their most fertile period (from first menstruation to +/- 35 years old) who have not given birth (yet), since research shows that nulliparous women have smaller uterine cavities. The IUD is easy to insert, and insertion is almost completely painless.

Since the Flexi-T does not contain any hormones, the body’s natural hormonal balance is not disrupted and the menstrual cycle remains normal.

The Flexi-T 300D offers 5 years of optimal contraceptive protection. 


 Flexi-T+ 300

The Flexi-T+ 300 is the bigger sister of the Flexi-T 300 (32 mm long and 28 mm wide, wrapped in 300 mm² of copper wire) and ideal for women who have given birth to one or more children, since research shows that the uterus is somewhat larger after pregnancy. The IUD is easy to insert, and insertion is almost completely painless.
Women who have a history of spotting throughout their menstrual cycle may want to opt for this type.

Since the Flexi-T does not contain any hormones, the body’s natural hormonal balance is not disrupted and the menstrual cycle remains normal.

The Flexi-T+ 300 offers 5 years of optimal contraceptive protection. 

 Flexi-T+ 380

Similar to the Flexi-T+ 300, the Flexi-T+ 380 is a bigger sister of the Flexi-T 300 (32 mm long and 28 mm wide, wrapped in 380 mm² of copper wire). The difference between the Flexi-T+ 300 and the Flexi-T+ 380 is the amount of copper and how it is distributed. In the Flexi-T+ 380, the vertical axis is wrapped in 300 mm² of copper wire, supplemented by copper on the arms of the T-shape (for a total of 380 mm² of copper), boosting effectiveness.

This IUD is ideal for women in their most fertile period (20-35 years old) who have given birth to one or more children, since research shows that the uterus is somewhat larger after pregnancy. The IUD is easy to insert, and insertion is almost completely painless.

The amount of copper in this model may affect the menstrual cycle. Women who have a history of spotting throughout their menstrual cycle may prefer a different Flexi-T model.

Since the Flexi-T does not contain any hormones, the body’s natural hormonal balance is not disrupted and the menstrual cycle remains normal.

The Flexi-T+ 380 offers 5 years of optimal contraceptive protection.
