An IUD is a ‘T’ shaped birth control device that is placed into a woman’s uterus through the cervix to prevent pregnancy. An IUD has two thin strings attached to the bottom that hang down from the vagina when inserted. These strings help the user locate the IUD and ensure it is in place.

An IUD works by preventing the sperm from fertilizing the egg. There are two types of IUDs in general Hormonal and Non-Hormonal IUDs and both prevent pregnancy, but in slightly different ways.

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are a safe and effective contraceptive option that has gained a lot of traction over the last few years. This form of birth control provides long-lasting and reliable results and doesn’t require any regular maintenance. 


When deciding which method of birth control is best for you, there are many factors to consider, including the cost, efficacy, ease of use, etc. Kyleena, Mirena and Paragard Copper IUD are among the IUDs available in Canada.
