Intra-Uterine Device (IUD)
The IUD is an object that is placed inside the uterus by a physician
HOW IT WORKS:
Does not prevent ovulation. It’s presence in the uterus and the hormone progesterone it releases alters the fluids in the womb and the lining of the womb. The presence of the IUD irritates the lining of the womb thus making it inhospitable to a new human life. The newly conceived baby cannot attach to the wall of the womb and is aborted.
