What is an Intrauterine devices (IUDs) ?

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are small devices placed in your uterus to interrupt the process of insemination. IUDs have been on and off the market for decades. They’re very popular around the world and one of the most effective forms of birth control.

There are two types of IUD: copper and hormonal. IUDs are an excellent choice of birth control for many women.

Both the copper and hormonal types of IUDs work by making it difficult for sperm to reach your egg. Hormonal IUD’s works to thin the lining of your uterus to prevent the transport of sperm into your fallopian tubes where fertilization must occur. The progestin it releases also thickens your cervical mucus and can prevent ovulation.
