Various hypothesis have been advanced over the years about the mechanism of action of IUD’s including interference with sperm transport, ovum transport or development, fertilization and implantation. Until 1980’s it was believed that IUD worked mainly by causing an inflammatory response to a foreign body in uterus thereby interfering with implantation of a fertilized egg in uterine wall. The consensus on informed opinion has now changed. It is now believed that Copper IUD’s prevent fertilization by reducing the number and viability of sperm reaching the egg, and by impending the number and movement of eggs in the uterus. The continuous release of copper from coils of Silverline Cu 200 Ag/380 Ag into uterine cavity is supposed to enhance the contraceptive effect of IUD.
Expect changes in bleeding patterns and cramps after IUD placement. These symptoms reduce after several months of usage.

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.
