Intrauterine Tools (Spiral)

Spiral (intrauterine instruments) is a small plastic tool placed inside the uterus. Spiralins have copper and hormone-containing types. The most common method of family planning methods is intra-uterine vehicles (spiral). It has been the most important factor in choosing the use of spirals to be easy, inexpensive and long term. Once the spiral is placed in the uterus, it has a protective effect of 5 or 10 years of pregnancy according to the type of spirals. The Protector is considered 97%. The protective effect begins immediately when the Spiral is attached. When removed, the protective effect from pregnancy is eliminated immediately.

How many kinds of spirals are there?

Copper spirals: Our country has 10 years protective T Cooper, 5-year protective multiload, Nova t copper-containing intrauterine instruments. Hormonal spirals: Our country has a hormonal spiral containing levonorgestrel named Demirena. The most important difference from other spirals is that it reduces the amount of menstrual bleeding. It can be used as an alternative to uterine retrieval surgeries in appropriate cases for therapeutic purposes.

How does Spiral protect from pregnancy?

Prevents the movement of copper sperm in the contents of the spiral. Therefore, it adversely affects fertilizinism. Again, the inflammatory environment created by copper prevents the uterus from settling even if the egg is fertited.
