IUD Insertion Near Kittery, Massachusetts
Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are small, adaptable devices that can be inserted by a clinician into the uterus. The different IUDs work from various perspectives to prevent pregnancy and will do work before conception ever occurs. An IUD works by preventing fertilization of the egg either with hormones or copper ions. The ParaGard copper-style IUD releases small amounts of copper inside the uterus, which works to limit sperm mobility and creates an inhospitable environment for the sperm to live. The small quantity of hormones released inside the uterus work by inhibiting ovulation and thickening cervical mucus which also limits sperm mobility, and keeps the lining of the uterus very thin. IUDs last many years depending upon the type you choose. Skyla, Kyleena and Liletta last between 3 and 5 years. Mirena lasts for up to 7 years and ParaGuard lasts 10 to 12 years. Fertility is also immediately returned upon removal of the gadget.
