Intrauterine Device(IUD) - Are They Suitable for You?

Intrauterine Device(IUD) - Are They Suitable for You?

If you are thinking of adopting one of the effective birth control measures, you can try an intrauterine device (IUD). An IUD is a small plastic device which is placed in the uterus and it helps in preventing the pregnancy. A plastic string is attached to one end for ensuring proper placement and for removal. An IUD can be removed easily and is a reversible birth control method. There are several advantages and disadvantages of using IUDs.

There are two types of IUDs which are commonly used. They are as follows:

  1. Hormonal IUDs: In case of hormonal IUDs, a small amount of progestin is released into the lining of the uterus. This hormone is similar to the progesterone hormone. This hormone helps in thickening the cervical mucus, thereby, making it difficult for the entry of sperm into the cervix. The growth of the uterine lining is slowed down, which makes fertilised eggs inhospitable.
  2. Copper IUDs: In this form of IUD, a tiny amount of copper gets released into the uterus. Sperm is prevented from entering the egg as they get immobilised on the way to the fallopian tubes.

Advantages

  1. Most women who have used this contraceptive device are satisfied with them, according to surveys.
  2. A woman using an IUD is protected from pregnancy totally and no other preventive measures such as taking a pill every day is required.
  3. These devices start working as soon as they are fitted and can easily be removed.
  4. They can be implanted in the uterus four weeks after giving birth to a baby or after an abortion.
  5. Breastfeeding is safe for women using copper IUDs.
  6. Using IUDs enables a woman to smoke cigarettes and high blood pressure is prevented.
  7. Women who use hormonal IUDs experience less blood loss during menstruation and less pain.
  8. IUDs can be used for several years.

Disadvantages

  1. IUDs are quite expensive.
  2. IUDs can only be removed by a health professional.
  3. These devices do not provide protection from any sexually transmitted disease or HIV.
  4. The insertion of IUDs can cause a genital infection in the uterus and lead to pelvic inflammatory diseases.
  5. There are chances of an IUD getting misplaced in the uterus, which may lead to pregnancy and injuries as well. The wall of the uterus may get punctured upon insertion of this device, leading to cramping, backache and excessive uterine bleeding accompanied by pain.

It is important that you must consult a doctor before thinking of getting an IUD fitted. Several screenings and tests need to be carried out before deciding upon the IUD that would work best for you. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello do not worry too much. Have it hurted too much at the time of insertion? In many girls hymen breking is accidental it may be also due to cycling or aggressive exertions or any other things. So not to worry for that too much. Examination by gynaec doc will help you. But its not necessary to do that examination also. Relax.

Hello, Irregular period is usually defined as any type of bleeding that's abnormal when compared to your last few menstrual cycles. It can include everything from a late period to early bleeding, and scant bleeding to extremely heaving bleeding. For many women, this can even mean an absent period (amenorrhea) or two periods in one month (metrorrhagia). It's actually a way of your body telling you something is not right and probably your hormones (especially estrogen and progesterone) are imbalanced. Although, in most cases, they are not dangerous, but it is important to figure out what is causing the irregularity (which may require a trip to the doctor). Some common reasons for irregular periods: STRESS: Stress is the most common cause of irregular periods. Cortisol, the stress hormone, has a direct impact on how much estrogen and progesterone, two sex hormones, gets produced by the body. POOR DIET: Unhealthy eating and being overweight or underweight can cause irregular periods. In order for a woman to maintain a regular cycle, her body fat percentage needs to be at least 17-22 percent. EXCESSIVE EXERCISE: Excessive exercising (or even lack of it) and drastic weight changes can decrease the body fat, being underweight can offset your hormone levels, thus contributing to irregular periods. BIRTH CONTROL PILLS: When some women stop taking the pill, their periods may take one to three months to return to normal. And this can also reveal an underlying hormonal problem that was masked by taking the birth control pills. PCOS: Polycystic ovary syndrome causes cysts to form on the ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation. In fact, PCOS is far more complicated than a missed period. Talk to your doctor about this condition. THYROID: Thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, can cause widespread symptoms like changes in estrogen and cortisol hormones and missed periods. OTHER REASONS: Some other reasons include perimenopause, menopause, pregnancy, certain medications you might be taking due to other health issues, and breastfeeding. Some home remedies you can try to treat irregular period problem: REDUCE STRESS: Breathe away stress by doing yoga and breathing exercises and meditation in the morning. Also, do kapalbhati and anulom-vilom pranayama for 15 mins each. CHASTE BERRY: The best known hormone balancing herb for women, Chaste berry helps to regulate the female gynecological system. It works by normalizing the secretions of the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which then appropriately signal to balance the endocrine system. Note – This herb is not recommended if you are taking any fertility drug. It should not be consumed during pregnancy. SHATAVARI: Shatavari is also known to restore the balance of hormones in women. Mix it with equal amount of Ashwagandha and take 1 teaspoon with warm milk at night daily. OTHER HERBS: Some other herbs you can try to regain healthy menstruation: Holy basil (Tulsi), Black cohosh, licorice (Mulethi) root, turmeric, and Evening primerose oil. (If you are on medications, always consult your doctor first). DIETARY CHANGES: Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice. Add ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, green (unripe) papaya, sesame seeds (with Jaggery), Apple Cider Vinegar and wheat grass to your diet. Also eat other seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most women return to healthy menstruation cycle following these remedies. However, if you don’t benefit from the above, you should see your gynaecologist immediately.

I got pregnant 7 weeks and then stop heart beat baby is dead why this happened please answer me.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Sometimes it can be due to infection in uterus, other cause is compatable issues between fetus and mother and we do not know much about it. If it happens once -ignore. If it happens twice, get investigated for TORCH which will tell you about 5 types of infections responsible for missing heart beat. Curable conditions though. 7 weeks pregnancy - wait for a week before taking next step of clearing up. One can rarely see heart beat at 8 weeks. Do get back with report. Do not go in for more traumatic D & C. Ask your Doctor to do Mr. (menstrual Regulation) using a disposable pipe and a Syringe with negative pressure to suck out material in one go.

Apart from low ovarian reserve on basis of number of number of eggs on usg just send me your other reports and get an Amh test done. And yes at the age of 35 with low reserve of ovaries it will be difficult for you to conceive naturally and more waiting will do more harm to you as after some time your reserve will be so low that you might require for a donor egg also for ivf success. So it's high time you should plan for ivf. How to proceed for it. U can consult me privately .don't worry you will get pregnant. All the best.

I was suffering from pcod and after 3 months of medication my cysts have reduced. Now I have cysts on only one ovary. My husband is coming for 1 month. Can I become pregnant in one month and will I be fertile on 22 day of my cycle (my cycle is 30 days old)

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Irrespective of cyst size and number, its more important to know how many days your last 3 cycles were, particularly those that came after all medication were stopped. From that we can come to the average days in each cycle, plus the range. This will help in formulating the'most fertile period' which will be quite specific in your case. Provided there are no other issues (after full investigation) spontaneous pregnancy is still possible.
