What Is an IUD?

If you want birth control that does not require condoms or pills, consider IUD insertion near Houston. This video describes how IUD insertion works and why women’s healthcare experts recommend it.

An IUD is a device that a gynecologist can implant into your uterus during a minimally invasive procedure. Depending on the type of IUD, it can obstruct sperm passage into the uterus, prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg, or simply kill sperm. Gynecologists often suggest IUD insertion for patients who want long-term birth control. Its success rate of preventing pregnancy is similar to that of tubal ligation, but it does not cause permanent side effects that may hinder pregnancy in the future. IUD removal is a simple procedure that can allow women to start families when they are ready.
