An intrauterine device is a T-shaped contraceptive device that is inserted into the uterus.
Copper devices affect the mobility of semen and the ovum and reduce sperm’s ability to fertilize the ovum.
Hormonal IUDs make the endometrium too thin for pregnancy and thicken the secretion of the cervical canal so that the entry of the ovum-fertilizing spermatozoa is impaired.
IUDs are suitable for women who are looking for long-term birth control (contraception) and who for some reason cannot or do not want to use birth control pills or who are breastfeeding. Hormonal IUDs are suitable for women with heavy menstrual bleeding.
IUDs are not recommended as a contraceptive device for women who have not given birth. IUDs ensure protection against pregnancy for five years and contraceptive effects appear immediately after insertion.
