PARAGARD

What is it?
ParaGard or Copper IUD is a hormone-free intrauterine device (IUD) that is placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy, and is over 99% effective birth control for up to 10 years. 

How does it work?
Getting an IUD does not require surgery! It typically takes just a few minutes for a healthcare professional to insert the device into the uterus and once it is in place, it provides continuous, highly effective birth control.

How does it work?
Made of plastic and wrapped with a thin copper wire, ParaGard releases small amounts of copper that prevent sperm from passing into the cervix.
