Contraception can help prevent pregnancy, and some types can protect against sexually transmitted infections. You may be asking yourself, which contraceptive method is best for your lifestyle to prevent an unplanned pregnancy? It depends on many factors: age, health, desire to have children in the future, frequency of sexual activity, number of partners, etc. There are many contraceptive methods to suit different needs. Specialists working at the Sokrato Clinic can help you choose the most appropriate and best contraceptive method and tell you about possible side effects.
One of the methods of contraception is a hormonal or non-hormonal IUD.
IUD insertion is a procedure during which small devices are inserted into the uterus to effectively prevent pregnancy. It is one of the safest and most effective contraceptives with a long-term reliability of up to 99%. Inserted IUDs protect against pregnancy for up to 5 years. IUDs can be of two types – hormonal and non-hormonal. Inserted non-hormonal (copper) IUDs release copper ions that kill sperm. Hormonal IUDs also release substances that thicken cervical mucus, making it harder for sperm to enter the uterus. Hormonal coils also reduce menstrual bleeding and can suppress ovulation.
Who is this procedure performed on?
When long-term and constant contraception is needed, there is frequent sexual intercourse, the procedure is performed on women who have given birth and who have not given birth, the introduction of the spiral can be performed on women who have had uterine operations, for example, a Caesarean section.
