    it is a birth control device also known as an IUD or a coil It is a device placed in the uterus and is the world's most widely used method of reversible birth control. The device has to be fitted inside the uterus by a doctor It remains in place the entire time pregnancy is not desired .

    it can be used as emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sexual intercourse.

    n it is not a killer nor a destroyer it just stops the sperms to enter the uterus !

    It does stop implantation. I do not consider this to be killing in any way. Like another post stated, it is the most widely used contraceptive in the world. I had one for 6 years and loved it! No hormonal ups and downs.

    Technically, (according to the Catholic Church) ANY contraceptive is a sin and is preventing birth, so why the issue with this?

    An intra-uterine device (COPPER T) (intra meaning within, and uterine meaning of the uterus) is a birth control device also known as an IUD or a coil (this colloquialism is based on the coil-shaped design of early IUDs).

    It is a device placed in the uterus and is the world's most widely used method of reversible birth control, currently used by nearly 160 million women (just over two-thirds of whom are in China where it is the most widely used birth control method, surpassing sterilization).

    The device has to be fitted inside or removed from the uterus by a doctor or qualified medical practitioner.

    It remains in place the entire time pregnancy is not desired.

    Depending on the type, a single IUD is approved for 5 to 10 years use (the copper T 380A is effective for at least 12 years).

    Effectiveness and mechanism of contraception

    All second-generation copper-T IUDs have failure rates of less than 1% per year, and cumulative 10-year failure rates of 2-6%.

    A large World Health Organization trial reported a cumulative 12-year failure rate of 2.2% for the T 380A (ParaGard) (an average failure rate of 0.18% per year over 12 years), equivalent to a cumulative 10-year failure rate of 1.8% following tubal ligation. The frameless GyneFix also has a failure rate of less than 1% per year.

    Worldwide, older IUD models with lower effectiveness rates are no longer produced.

    The presence of a device in the uterus prompts the release of leukocytes and prostaglandins by the endometrium. These substances are hostile to both sperm and eggs; the presence of copper increases this spermicidal effect.

    Some barrier contraceptives protect against STDs. Hormonal contraceptives reduce the risk of developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a serious complication of certain STDs. IUDs, by contrast, do not protect against STDs or PID.

    Non-hormonal (copper) IUDs are considered safe to use while breastfeeding.

    While the primary mechanism of action of the IUD is spermicidal/ovicidal, post-fertilization mechanisms are believed by some pro-life physicians to contribute significantly to their effectiveness.

    Because many pro-life individuals and organizations define fertilization as the beginning of pregnancy, this possible secondary mechanism of action has led some pro-life individuals and organizations to label the IUD an abortifacient.

    It reduces the number and viability of the sperm, and it impedes the movement and number of the eggs that are trying to get released into the uterus.
