You can start using Silverline anytime, when it is certain that you are not pregnant. If you start Silverline within 12 days after the start of your monthly bleeding, there is no need to use any back up method. If you are currently using any other contraceptive method consistently and correctly, you can switch to Silverline immediately.
In the first few months after starting Silverline, you may see some changes in your bleeding pattern. These may include prolonged and heavy monthly bleeding, irregular bleeding and more cramps and pain during monthly bleeding. These changes are however not signs of illness. They usually become less after the first several months after insertion. Please do visit your service provider for help if these changes bother you.
Most side effects occur temporarily after insertion. Women using Silverline Cu 380 Ag/Cu 200 Ag model should be aware about the common side effects of IUD which are given below.
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 comes with the assurance of comfort, convenience and intimacy with no fear.
Silverline is gentle during insertion and removal and helps reduce discomfort. Nylon Suture is softer hence it is more comfortable for the couple. It does not require daily attention from the user and does not interfere with sexual activity.
Because it contains no hormones Silverline does not affect lactation. It also avoids side effects common to hormonal family planning methods.
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.
Silverline is a quickly reversible contraceptive. Once the IUD is removed contraceptive protection is reversed. Fertility is rapidly restored once Silverline is removed
Expect changes in bleeding patterns and cramps after IUD placement. These symptoms reduce after several months of usage.
