An effective, long-acting and reversible method of contraception
The IUD is a small, T-shaped device that is placed in a woman's womb and provides contraceptive protection for up to ten years.
The IUD is a long-acting, reversible method of contraception (LARC). Long-acting methods of contraception all have the advantage that, once in place, you don’t need to think about them until they need replacing and none of them interrupt sex.
IUDs are also straightforward for a trained provider to insert and remove, which can generally be done at any time.
