User :   bagrodiasunita: i am 36, mother of 2 child. I want to know which contraceptive is best copper t or AAAAAAA i was using copper t till now. someone suggested XXXXXXXX i am confused
Doctor :   I am Dr. Mazumdar
Doctor :   Let me read the query
Doctor :   Do you have any problem with Cu T now?
User :   no, i hv removed it now after the time was over
Doctor :   I would suggest to go for Cu T again
Doctor :   There is no additional advantage you gather with AAAAAAA
Doctor :   Ofcourse XXXXXXXX is advanced
Doctor :   But if you are looking for contraception purely
Doctor :   Both are the same
Doctor :   99%
Doctor :   efficacy
User :   what advantage we hv in AAAAAAA why it is advanced
Doctor :   Hormonal
User :   how this is advantageous for me. will there be less side effects. is this meant by harmonal
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   I mean to say if you have not got any side effects of the Cu - T , you should consider going for it again
Doctor :   rather than trying other
Doctor :   Mirena can be good for the person who told you about it
Doctor :   because she would have had problems with it
Doctor :   Cu - T
User :   i hv also heard that there is no periods in XXXXXXXX and it restarts after u remove XXXXXXXX is this true
Doctor :   Not true
Doctor :   Every IUD takes 3 to 6 months
Doctor :   to resume the normal regular periods and set the Uterine endometrium for the pregnancy
Doctor :   The advantage of mirena ( Hormone coated)
Doctor :   is
Doctor :   that it (Mirena) releases small amounts of a synthetic progesterone hormone.
Doctor :   The hormone was added to attempt to decrease the bleeding and cramping that some women have with the normal IUD ( Cu - T).
Doctor :   Mirena and Cu - T can cause longer, heavier, and more painful menstrual periods, but this is much less common with the Mirena.
Doctor :   Mirena should not be used for women with Diabetes, family h/o of breast cancer
Doctor :   and if breast feeding
Doctor :   Cu T should not be used if one is allergic to copper
User :   then it means both are same but XXXXXXXX hv little extra advantage nothing more than that. one can go for either of these.
Doctor :   Yes
User :   thanks
Doctor :   Unless you have more bleeding
Doctor :   Go for Cu T
