Intrauterine Device

What Is the Intrauterine Device?
DIU cupru

  • The copper-bearing intrauterine device (IUD) is a small, flexible plastic frame with copper sleeves or wire around it. A specifically trained health care provider inserts it into a woman’s uterus through her vagina and cervix.
  • Almost all types of IUDs have one or two strings, or threads, tied to them. The strings hang through the cervix into the vagina.
  • Works primarily by causing a chemical change that damages sperm and egg before they can meet.
