The intrauterine device (IUD), is a birth control device placed into a woman’s uterus by a health care provider. It is usually made of plastic or metal with a string attached. There are 2 types of IUDs. A copper IUD can stay in the uterus for up to 10 years. IUDs that contain the female hormone progesterone can stay in place up to 5 years. The IUD prevents pregnancy by changing the physical environment of the reproductive tract. These changes appear to prevent the egg from being fertilized or implanting and growing in the uterus.
