What is "the IUD"?
The IUD is a small, plastic device that is inserted by a physician / practitioner and left inside the uterus.  Although there have been several types of IUDs, currently only two are available in the United States.  Both are T-shaped and have a string at the base of the T that will extend trough the cervix and lie in the vaginal canal.  The copper IUD releases a small amount of copper into the uterus and may remain in your body for up to 10 years.  The hormonal IUD releases a small amount of the hormone progesterone into the uterus, but must be replaced every year.
 
 
How does the copper IUD work?
It primarily prevents pregnancy by interfering with the movement of sperm thus preventing fertilization of  the egg.  The copper IUD prevents fertilization as well as affecting the lining of the uterus so implantation will not occur.
 
 
How effective is the copper IUD?
The IUD is extremely effective.  During the first year of use, 8 out of 1000 women will become pregnant with the Copper T.
 
 
Am I a good candidate for the copper IUD?
The copper IUD is best suited for women with families who want convenient, effective, reversible contraception. It is recommended for women who have at least one child, are in a stable, mutually faithful relationship (to minimize chance of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases that might cause pelvic inflammatory disease) and have no history or suspicion of pelvic infection.
 
 
Are there any reasons why I shouldn't use the copper IUD?

For some women, certain conditions can increase the chance of having problems with the IUD.  The IUD may NOT be a good choice if you have:

Abortion Clinic RU486 had a pelvic infection

Abortion Clinic RU486 abnormal vaginal bleeding
