An intrauterine device (IUD), also known as a intrauterine contraceptive (IUC), is a small, flexible “T” shaped device that is placed inside of the uterus. These long-acting birth control devices can provide pregnancy prevention for 3-10 years depending on which IUD you choose. Paragard IUD is small, safe, and highly effective.
