Contraceptive Coil - Very Popular With Millions of Women

June 30, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

Women all over the world have many types of contraceptives to choose from. However, intra-uterine devices such as the contraceptive coil continue to be very popular with women. The contraceptive coil is a small device that incidentally is no longer coil shaped, that is inserted into the uterus of the woman who wants to have long term freedom from pregnancy.

An intra-uterine device, also known as IUD, works by changing the environment of the uterus so that the sperm finds it almost impossible to meet the egg. Some IUDs release small amounts of hormones into the womb whereas others release tiny amounts of copper.

A hormonal IUD works by making the walls of the cervix become very thick, preventing the sperm from making their way into the uterus. The vaginal secretions also become much thicker, thereby further obstructing the movement of the sperm. The third change that a hormonal contraceptive coil offers is that the walls of the uterus become very thin. This is extremely useful in case the sperm has managed to make its way to fertilize the egg. The thin walls of the uterus will not be a hospitable place for the embryo which will not be able to successfully implant. This type of contraceptive coil can be left in place for up to 5 years.

A copper contraceptive coil can only prevent the sperm from entering the uterus by thickening the walls of the cervix. It cannot be of any use once the embryo has been created. However, many women prefer this method because it does not rely on any hormones. In addition, it lasts for an impressive period of 10 years, unless there is any problem or infection.

It cannot be said that a contraceptive coil is entirely without problems. This method is best suited to women who have already had one child. Women who have not yet given birth will find the process of implanting the IUD to be very difficult. All women tend to experience heavy and irregular periods immediately after the implantation. Some women also experience abdominal and back pains for a while. These negative side effects usually go away on their own after a few months after which women can enjoy a trouble free love life.

A woman who wants to get pregnant only has to get the IUD removed by a doctor. It will take a few months for the woman to regain her fertility. In fact, a vast majority of women who remove their IUDs manage to get pregnant within a year.

The contraceptive coil is meant for women who are in long term relationships with one partner because it does not prevent against sexually transmitted diseases. They offer a 98 percent chance of preventing pregnancy which many women consider to be very acceptable especially since they can use condoms or spermicidal gels during their peak fertile period. On the whole, the contraceptive coil gives women the freedom from having to worry about contraception. It is also very cheap when compared to many other methods of birth control.
