Intrauterine Contraceptive Devices or IUCDs are devices that are inserted into the uterus to prevent contraception. These devices come in various shapes, size and are of many types. An IUCD changes the uterine lining which prevents the fertilised egg from attaching itself onto the uterine walls, thus preventing implantation. Getting an IUCD fitted is a quick, non-surgical procedure and it is a safe method of contraception.
The copper-T is a type of IUDC that is inserted into the uterus as a form of long term birth control. This device has a T shaped plastic frame which has copper wire coiled around its stem and 2 copper sleeves along its arms. These copper sleeves release copper continuously into the uterus lining, bathing it in copper, to which the uterus has an inflammatory response that makes the environment toxic for sperm. This reaction helps in preventing fertilization as the sperm cannot survive.
Advantages of using a copper IUD
Merina is another type of IUD that uses hormones as a form of birth control to prevent pregnancy. This device also has a T-shaped frame made of plastic that is inserted into the uterus which releases a type of progestin hormone. The Mirena once inserted begins to thicken the mucus lining in the cervix, which stops the sperms from reaching the egg for fertilisation. This device also partially represses ovulation and thins the uterus lining as well.
