Abstract : pA systematic search of the literature available on the use of Levonorgestrel intra-uterine system (LNG-IUS) in women with abnormal uterine bleeding was done. This included PubMed searches up to February 2017 as well as references available with the authors. LNG-IUS usage in other situations was not included in the study. Each relevant published article was evaluated as to whether it served the purpose of this review. Available data show that LNG-IUS is certainly the one-stop answer to AUB, providing a safe and cost-effective treatment and being a substitute for hysterectomy in most women with AUB. © 2017 Federation of Obstetric amp; Gynecological Societies of India/p
