IUD U-CARE . لولب ( U – KARE )
The intrauterine device (IUD) is a very effective method of birth control. It is a small, plastic, T-shaped device that contains copper or hormones. The doctor inserts the IUD into your uterus. If you and your doctor discuss it before you give birth, this can be done right after you have your baby. A plastic string tied to the end of the IUD hangs down through the cervix into the vagina.
There are two types of IUDs. The copper IUD is effective for 3 to 10 years, depending on which IUD is used. The hormonal IUD is effective for 3 to 5 years, depending on which IUD is used. But your doctor may talk to you about leaving it in for longer. The hormonal IUD also reduces menstrual bleeding and cramping. Both types of IUD most likely work by damaging or killing the man’s sperm. This means that the woman’s egg can’t join with the sperm. IUDs may also change the lining of the uterus so that the egg does not lodge there.
