Copper T is an intrauterine device (IUD) which is said to be an effective type of contraception for ladies. This choice is generally given to ladies who have delivered an infant before. Insertion of Copper T is an invasive procedure that should be conducted by a specialist. The device is set into the uterus of the lady with a plastic string fixing to the finish of the IUD swinging from the cervix to the vagina.

Mechanism of Copper-T for contraception:
Once a Copper T is in place, the copper particles delivered from the wire wrapped around the plastic T impact the uterine condition to avoid pregnancy. The copper particles get blended with the uterine liquids and cervix mucus. This uterine fluid, rich in copper, goes about as a spermicide which kills sperms that interact with it. Copper ions avert pregnancy by restraining the development of sperm since copper-particle containing liquids are straightforwardly harmful to sperm. Even if an aggressive little spermatozoa fertilizes an egg, the copper ion laden environment prevents implantation of the fertilized egg, thus preventing pregnancy.
