What is GyneFix Spiral and How Does It Protect?

GyneFix Spiral

I met the famous beaded spiral at a gynecology congress. It was about 10 years ago, there was an application training on a model.

You know me, you know that I am open to innovations and I spent a lot of time at their counter to try, learn and discover new things. Because they were quite ambitious. Why? They said that they did not slip out of the uterus and they guaranteed 99.9% contraception. This was a very high rate among contraceptive methods. This is how my GyneFix adventure started. Then I liked it very much and I have been applying it to women who want to be safely protected for many years.

Let's come to the scientist who produced it, Dr. Dirk Wildemeersch from abroad. It is a hormone-free, healthy and natural contraception method for women. GyneFix spiral intrauterine device protects women who want to be protected with a spiral from unwanted pregnancy at a high rate and without side effects.

GyneFix Beaded Spiral

You know, dear reader, intrauterine devices, i.e. spirals, are the most preferred method of contraception both in Turkey and all over the world. GyneFix, a new spiral developed by Belgian Dr. Dirk Wildemeersch, protects women from unwanted pregnancy at a higher rate and with fewer side effects. This method, which has been used in Europe for the last 20 years, has only recently been introduced to Turkish women. GyneFix has become widespread in Turkey in recent years.

What is GyneFix Beaded Spiral?

GyneFix is a hormone-free and new generation intrauterine device. It is a modern birth control method. It consists of 4 small copper tubes arranged on a blue prolene surgical thread.

Will the Gynefix spiral slip?

The GyneFix has a special knot at the top end. And this knot is placed on the uterine lining with a special method of fixation. This knot is located between the muscle layers of the uterus. It will never come out again unless a specialist removes it. You can imagine it like a chandelier mounted on the ceiling. The wall at the top of the uterus needs to be a certain thickness for this placement. Not all women are compatible for this reason.

Before GyneFix spiral application, we, trained and experienced gynecologists, can understand whether it is suitable for you or not by gynecological examination and ultrasound examination. When applied to suitable women, it does not slip out of the uterus due to its placement and does not come out of the uterine wall.

GyneFix, which is very small and flexible, completely adapts to the uterus of each woman, which has different sizes and shapes. This compatibility distinguishes the GyneFix spiral from other spirals. Side effects experienced in other spirals are eliminated by 99%.

How Does GyneFix Beaded Spiral Protect?

GyneFix beaded spiral protects against pregnancy by acting on two systems.

First, the tiny copper tubes in the GyneFix beaded spiral continuously release copper ions into the uterine wall within a 24-hour day routine. These ions enter the uterus

Secondly, copper ions released into the uterus stimulate the release of leukocytes and prostaglandins from the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. These substances neutralize the sperm. These molecules also neutralize the sperm both in the uterus and in the oviduct.

This double effect makes the Gynefix beaded spiral a very safe contraceptive method. It does not interfere with any hormonal pattern of the woman. The woman's menstrual cycle continues in her own cycle.

How Many Years Does Gynefix Beaded Spiral Protect Against Pregnancy?

The GyneFix beaded spiral protects you for 5 years from the moment it is inserted. Immediately after removal, the contraceptive effect disappears. In other words, it is of course possible to become pregnant from the moment we take the Gynefix spiral out of the uterus. It has no effect on conception after removal.

Does the Gynefix Spiral Slip?

The GyneFix beaded spiral is one of the safest contraception methods in the world. The rate of protection against unwanted pregnancy is between 99.5-99.9%. The mechanism to ensure such a high level of safety is that the GyneFix is fixed to the uterine lining. This mechanism prevents GyneFix from being expelled from the uterus, unlike other spirals. This mechanism also prevents the GyneFix Spiral from shifting and shifting in the uterus.

When is the Gynefix beaded spiral inserted?

We apply the GyneFix beaded spiral in our clinic during our patients' menstrual periods. We recommend the menstrual period for placement. We make sure that there is no pregnancy. It is also more comfortable for the patient as the cervix softens and opens (less pain and soreness).

Before the insertion, our practitioners use an ultrasound device to check the uterus and ovaries for any health problems or conditions that may interfere with the procedure. Our GyneFix beaded spiral procedure takes only a few minutes.

What to Expect After the GyneFix Beaded Spiral?

We recommend not having sexual intercourse for 7-10 days after insertion into the uterus. During this time, we recommend avoiding heavy sports and activities. This period and the things we want to pay attention to are necessary for it to be fixed in the uterus. At the end of this period, your physician will call you for a follow-up. After the control, you can continue your daily life activities and sexual life. Your physician usually arranges your second check-up after the 3rd month. After that, annual check-ups are sufficient like other spirals.

What Should Be Considered After Having a GyneFix Beaded Spiral?

  • I recommend not doing strenuous sports for 10-15 days.
  • The first months after insertion into the uterus are the adaptation period. During this period, menstrual irregularities may occur. This is a natural reaction.
  • After the adaptation period is over, menstrual pattern returns to normal after 3 months in some women and 6 months in some women.

Side Effects of GyneFix Beaded Spiral

Just as we all have different faces, noses, hands, body organs and sizes, so does the size of the uterus.

As a newly inserted spiral adapts to the uterus, its side effects decrease. Therefore, it increases the continuity of use. T-spirals, which are most commonly used in our country, cause side effects as high as 80% in women.

What are the Side Effects of Gynefix Beaded Spiral?

  • Increase in menstrual bleeding,
  • Intermittent bleeding outside the menstrual period,
  • Pain, stinging, slipping during sexual intercourse,
  • Unintended pregnancy at a rate of one in ten thousand,
  • Pain and the possibility of infection.

These very rare side effects are usually accepted by women who use the spiral and continue to use it. Very few women stop using it.

The Gynefix beaded spiral does not have a high efficacy rate like other spirals. In scientific studies and by women using gynefix, it has been found to reduce the common side effects of other spirals by 99%.

Women who use the GyneFix beaded spiral do not change the amount of menstrual bleeding and menstrual bleeding continues as regular.

  • Women do not experience stinging, pain and slipping.
  • Women do not experience pain during sexual intercourse.
  • There is no risk of infection in women.

Can I use the GyneFix Beaded Spiral?

If you and your partner have already had the desired number of children or if you want to take a break for a while, this spiral is a reliable method of contraception for you.

For young women who have not given birth, the GyneFix beaded spiral can also be used by women who have not given birth because it is small and flexible, unlike other spirals. In short, dear women, you can spend your energy on your career, school and enjoying your marriage and life until you decide to have children.

Women who have recently given birth, if you have given birth normally, you can have it fitted at the end of the puerperium and after three months if you have given birth by caesarean section. GyneFix does not affect your baby and has no negative effect on breastfeeding. So you can spend quality time with your baby without fear of getting pregnant again.

GyneFix can also be used as a form of emergency contraception. If you have had unprotected intercourse, you will be protected from conception if you have a GyneFix beaded spiral inserted for emergency contraception on the first day after unprotected intercourse or within 72 hours after intercourse. You will enjoy this peace of mind for five years after the procedure.

Abortion can be performed immediately after hospitalization. Abortion is a decision-making process that leads to a very traumatic emotional state. In our opinion, abortion is not contraception. To avoid having to go through such a situation again, a Gynefix beaded spiral can be inserted during the abortion.
