Intrauterine devices (IUD) are small plastic devices inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancies by trained physicians. IUD is considered as one of the safest and effective methods of contraception that will protect against pregnancy for up to 5 – 10 years and could be reversed anytime by undergoing an IUD removal process.
At Sage Meadows Medical Centre, we offer two types of IUDs: copper and hormonal. The hormonal IUDs release hormones with a lifetime of around 5 years. Copper IUDs are non-hormonal with a lifetime of 10 years. After consulting the physician, you can choose the best option for you. We make sure that our patients are well educated about the device and its efficiency before insertion.
