The main difference between Silverline and other copper T intrauterine devices is the silver core that is used in the copper wire. This silver core prevents the fragmentation of the copper wire, thereby improving the performance of the device. Also, the thinner insertion tube used for Silverline results in lesser pain during insertion.
Expect changes in bleeding patterns and cramps after IUD placement. These symptoms reduce after several months of usage.
Silverline cannot be used in the following conditions:
Silverline is contraindicated in women with: known or suspected pregnancy, congenital or acquired uterine anomaly, Suspected Endometriosis or infected abortion in the past 3 months; unexplained uterine bleeding; current IUD; acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or history of PID, genital tract infections
PID awareness is essential. IUDs have been associated with an increased risk of PID. PID is often associated with sexually transmitted infections (STIs); Silverline does not protect against STIs, including HIV.
