The IUD also called intrauterine device is a birth control method. It’s a small T-shaped object that is inserted into the uterine cavity and is connected by wires that come out of the cervix. These wires make it possible to know if the IUD is in place or to remove it. The objective of the IUD is to trigger an inflammatory action of the mucosa in order to prevent a fertilized egg from being received. Two types of IUDs exist on the market: the IUD with hormone and the copper IUD.
Note that the IUD does not protect against STDs so it is important to use the condom during sexual intercourse.
