Explanation

Intrauterine devices (IUD’s):

  • An intrauterine device is a small object made up of plastic, copper, stainless steel that is inserted by a health care professional into the cavity of the uterus. These devices are presently very popular. These are presently available as non-medicated IUD’s such as Lippe’s loop, copper releasing IUD’s Eg: Cu T, Cu 7, Multiload 375 and some of the hormone releasing IUD’s Eg: Progestasert, LNG-20.
  • IUD’s increase phagocytosis of sperms within the uterus and the Cu ions, which are released, suppress sperm motility as well as the fertilizing capacity of sperms. The hormone releasing IUD’s make the uterus unsuitable for implantation and the cervix hostile to the sperms. IUD’s are ideal methods of methods used by females.
