How do IUD contraceptives work?

IUD (intrauterine device) is a small device placed inside the womb.

Highly effective for 10 to 12 years, it can be used by married and single people. It may increase monthly bleeding and cramps at first and once removed, the woman can become pregnant with no delay.

It does not cause infertility or birth defects, and does not move around inside the body.
