Intrauterine Device Insertion (Copper-Releasing IUD, ParaGard®)


During this procedure, the physician inserts a flexible plastic and copper Paragard® intrauterine device through the cervix and positions it within the uterus. Once in place, the Paragard IUD will continuously release a small amount of copper into the womb. The ParaGard IUD is an effective method of birth control, and can be left in the uterus for up to ten years.
