Levonorgestrel-(LNG) releasing intrauterine device (IUD) insertion revealed significant reduction in visual bleeding scores and spotting with an increase in amenorrhea and uterine pulsatility index scores. LNG-IUD can be considered as a simple and effective alternative to surgical treatment in the management of leiomyoma-dependent menorrhagia of reproductive-age women.
