Skyla is a small, flexible plastic T-shaped levonorgestrel-releasing contraceptive device that is placed in the uterus. Skyla helps you to effectively prevent pregnancy for up to three years. Skyla releases levonorgestrel, a female hormone which causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it difficult for a sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach itself to the uterus. Levonorgestrel is also an oral birth control hormone and is sold as pills by the same brand name Skyla.
