What is an Intrauterine Device (IUD)?
You may choose an intrauterine device (IUD) as your preferred form of birth control. An IUD is a small T-shaped object that is inserted and remains in your uterus, but it is removable. There are two types of IUDs that damage sperm before fertilization. One type contains copper, while the second type releases hormones. Hormone-releasing IUDs may also relieve painful menstrual cramps and heavy bleeding. Mirena and Skyla are two common brands of hormone-releasing IUDs. Para-grad is a copper-containing IUD brand. Clinic Sofia provides birth control consultation and IUD insertion at both locations.
