What is a ParaGard IUD?
The ParaGard is an intrauterine device (IUD) used for birth control. This device is a little, t-shaped piece of plastic that is inserted into the uterus. Instead of hormones, this device uses copper, which is wound around the central trunk and both arms. This copper produces an inflammatory reaction inside the uterus that acts as a spermicide, which helps to prevent fertilization.
Typically, a copper IUD can last up to 12 years, and its removal is marketed as a non-surgical procedure that can be done within minutes at the doctor’s office.
