Vaginal inflammations and the hormonal IUS

According to the few currently available scientific data, a hormonal IUS does not protect against vaginal inflammations (flora) such as fungal infections or bacterial vaginosis, but does not increase the risk.

It is not yet clear whether hormonal IUSs have a positive or negative effect on the normal vaginal flora. Studies are currently underway that should enable a more precise statement to be made in the future.
