My objective behind this study is to “save uterus” which is falling victim to the surgical treatment for dysfunctional uterine bleeding. In dysfunctional uterine bleeding levonorgestrel is a key drug which is given orally or intra muscularly which has many side effects and because of that patients fade up and demand hysterectomy for this benign condition. This is LNG system or intrauterine device delivering levonorgestrel at uterine endometrium. This study was carried out in the hospital “Varad Hospital”. Twenty five patients were included in this study after taking prior consent and after doing diagnostic curettage. Results were very promising. 88% of the patients got relief of the symptoms and happily continued it and even referred more clients for treatment. Conclusion: The Indian version of the “intrauterine LNG system” is cheaper, effective and easy to insert.
