How a Paragard IUD Can Make Birth Control Easy

Women seeking an easy birth control method should look into getting a Paragard intrauterine device (IUD). This device is made of copper and works by preventing sperm from fertilizing eggs and it prevents eggs from attaching to the uterus. It is 99% effective. The Paragard IUD contains no hormones and it won’t interfere with your natural cycles so you will continue to get periods. 

Paragard is a LARC

Long-acting, reversible contraceptives (LARC’s) are recommended by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Paragard is a LARC. The insertion process takes only a few minutes and can be completed in your doctor’s office as no surgery is necessary. If you need a doctor find a gynecologist in Boston that offers Paragard or contact women services in Boston. 

Why Paragard? 

  • Contains no hormones 
  • Lasts ten years
  • It is reversible (LARC)
  • It is 99% effective
  • Approved by the FDA
  • Recommended by   The American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists

Lasts Up To Ten Years

Paragard remains effective for ten years and can be removed any time. Because it’s a reversible birth control option, as soon as it’s removed pregnancy can be attempted. Once Paragard is placed, it can’t be seen or felt even by a partner. Tampons can still be used during periods. Paragard is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Women have been successfully using the Paragard IUD for the past twenty years. 

Paragard does not Protect Against STD’s or HIV

The Paragard IUD does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) or Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV). Always speak with a health care professional before deciding if a birth control method is right for you.

Contact abortion services Boston for more information on Paragard or other birth control options.
