IUD story

Fuhh...really suprise got calling from my BIG sis. She just wanna to say that she had passed this tiny instrument into her uteras. Cost living at KL with 3 kids who not only want your attention but also your MONEY, thus we have to plan well so at the end of the day everybody HAPPY.

So, let's check info that I got from internet:

What is an IUD?
An IUD is a small device made from plastic and copper. It can be placed quite easily into the uterus by doctor or nurse.

How does the IUD work?
It works mainly by stopping the egg and sperm from meeting. It may also prevent the fertilised egg from attaching to the lining of the uterus. The copper also has a spermicidal effect (kills sperm).

How effective is the IUD?
Modern IUDs are 99% effective or more. Older ones were slightly less reliable - about 98% effective.

For those plan to use IUD as part of your family planning program, please read and getting know advantages and disadvantages before use it.

All the best!!
