An effective long-acting, reversible contraceptive
The IUD is a small, T-shaped device that is placed in a woman's womb and provides contraceptive protection for up to ten years.
Made from plastic and copper, the IUD is a long-term method of contraception. Long-acting methods of contraception all have the advantage that, once in place, you don’t need to think about them until they need replacing and none of them interrupt sex. They’ve also been shown to be 20 times more effective than short term contraceptive methods such as the pill.
