Paragard is an IUD that does not contain any hormones at all. The copper coil around the shaft of the T-shaped slowly releases copper iron into the uterine cavity and makes the womb inhospitable to both sperm and egg and creates an environment unlikely to yield fertilization. Paragard can last up to ten years and can be removed if your goals change when it comes to family planning. Paragard is approved by the FDA, yet utilized by less than two percent of the women who use contraceptives. When making the decision to use a long term contraceptive, you and your doctor can decide what's right for you. Call Solace Women's Care to discuss your options to avoid unwanted pregnancy or if you have questions about any of our gynecology services.
