Silverline is superior to other contraceptive methods because it does not require any or repeated action on your part. Once it is placed in the uterus, it starts functioning immediately and continues to perform till the end of its period of effectiveness. It has an extremely low failure rate, which is better than that seen with most other modern temporary contraceptive methods.

Silverline is indicated to prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years. It must be removed by the end of the third / fifth year and can be replaced at the time of removal with a new IUD if continued contraceptive protection is desired. The Silverline IUD must be removed within 5 years (for Silverline Cu 380 Ag) and 3 years (for Silverline Cu 200 Ag).
Silverline is a quickly reversible contraceptive. Once the IUD is removed contraceptive protection is reversed.
Fertility is rapidly restored once Silverline is removed.
Silverline IUD is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. It has an extremely low failure rate, which is better seen than most family planning methods.
Silverline’s unique Silver Core helps ensure higher effectiveness as it prevents breakdown of the copper wire. Dissolution of the wire stops once it reaches the Silver Core, as Silver does not dissolve in contact with uterine fluids.
Once it is placed in the uterus, it starts functioning immediately and continues to perform till the end of its period of effectiveness.
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.
