Copper T Removal Procedure in Delhi
An intrauterine device (IUD) also known as Copper T is a form of birth control that a doctor places inside the uterus. The removal of an IUD is a simple procedure. To remove the IUD, the doctor will grasp the threads of the IUD with ring forceps. In most cases, the arms of the IUD will collapse upward, and the device will slide out. If the IUD doesn’t come out with a slight pull, hysteroscopy is needed to remove the IUD if it has attached to your uterine wall. During this procedure, the doctor widens the cervix to insert a hysteroscope. The hysteroscope allows small instruments to enter the uterus. This procedure is performed by Gynaecology and Obstetrics.
It is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy and can last for up to 5-10 years. If you are using copper IUD for emergency contraception, you need to use it within five days or 120 hours after unprotected sex.
How long can we use copper T?
The copper IUD (ParaGard) contains no hormones and prevents pregnancy for up to 10 years. ParaGard is an intrauterine device (IUD) that can provide long-term birth control (contraception). It’s sometimes referred to as a nonhormonal IUD option.
What is the best time to insert copper T?
A copper IUD can be inserted at any phase of the menstrual cycle, but the optimal time is right after the menstrual period, when the cervix is softest and the woman is least likely to be pregnant. The insertion process generally takes five minutes or less.
How is a Copper T inserted?
IUDs are shaped like a T, with one arm on either side. The doctor will fold down the arms and place the device into an applicator tube, then insert the tube through your cervix into your uterus. Once the IUD is in place, the arms will release and the doctor will remove the applicator tube
