PARAGARD IUD

What is Paragard?

Paragard is a small intrauterine device (IUD) developed by Teva Pharmaceuticals to provide long-term pregnancy prevention for women. The T-shaped device consists of a polyethylene frame and utilizes copper instead of hormones to prevent fertilization. The IUD was designed to last for up to 10 years after being implanted into the uterus.

Paragard was first approved by the FDA in 1984 and has been available in the US since 1988. Although the IUD is touted as a clinically-proven safe and convenient way of preventing pregnancy, there are risks associated with its use.
