IUD Clinics

The IUD is a small contraceptive device that is placed inside  the uterus. The progestogen IUD is a small T-shape device with a cylinder containing progestogen around its stem.


The IUD affects sperm movement and survival in the uterus (womb) so that they cannot reach the egg to fertilise it. The IUD also changes the lining of the womb (endometrium) so that it is not suitable for pregnancy and prevents an egg – if it does become fertilised – from developing.
