IUD Insertion in Brampton
For a safe and effective IUD insertion in Brampton, consider the specialists at Heart Lake Health Centre. We offer a variety of birth control methods, including IUD insertion.
What Is an IUD?
As one of the most effective birth control methods, an intrauterine device is a T-shape plastic device inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. An IUD has two plastic strings that remain in the vagina, just outside of the cervix. These strings cannot be seen or felt during sexual intercourse.
Types of IUD
Copper IUD/Non-Hormonal IUD
The copper IUD works to destroy sperm to prevent any egg fertilization. The IUD device has copper coiled around it and does not contain hormones.
A hormonal IUD contains progestin which is released to thicken the cervix’s mucous while thinning the uterine lining. These actions deter sperm from passing through and also impedes the implantation of an egg into the uterus.
The IUD Insertion Procedure
Before IUD Insertion
Before arriving at our IUD insertion clinic, we recommend that most patients take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs one hour before the appointment to help with any cramping or discomfort.
Ask your gynecologist any questions at your initial consultation. Before the appointment, have a healthy light meal to prevent dizziness from hunger.
During IUD Insertion
During the IUD insertion, our gynecologist in Brampton will cleanse the vagina and cervix base with an antiseptic solution. A speculum is inserted to guide the IUD into the uterus.
After IUD Insertion
As many patients can experience dizziness and cramping, it is recommended to have someone available to take you home to rest for the day. Some people may be able to return to regular activities the same day.
In the 24 hours after the procedure, it is recommended to abstain from sexual intercourse, using a tampon, and avoid swimming or baths.
