Doctor:Multiload is the new version of the copper T
User:is there any specific day to take IUCD ?
Doctor:The device is inserted usually on the 5th day of periods
Doctor:and it can stay for 5 years
Doctor:About injections, they are also safe
User:is there any side effect for the same
Doctor:but sometimes the woman can have excessive bleeding, changed cycles etc.
Doctor:I would say that using multiload is the better option
Doctor:provided there are no contraindications for its use
Doctor:Is there any other information you need?
User:she is having an irregular MC..on that case which is better
Doctor:Well first she needs to be investigated as to why she has irregular periods
Doctor:Suppose after investigation it is found that there is no fibroid etc but
Doctor:the irregularity is due to hormonal imbalance
Doctor:then it would be best to go for OCP
Doctor:that is oral contraceptive pills
Doctor:they help in regularizing the periods as well as are contraceptives
Doctor:But her problem should first be assessed.
User:but she does not want to take oral pills
Doctor:Ok, then find out from your Gynec if she can go for injections
User:okk is there any side effect of injections
Doctor:Yes, a few can occur.
Doctor:Injections by themselves may cause heavy bleeding, irregular bleeding.
Doctor:If used for a long time may lead to bone thinning
Doctor:Also some women may not have bleeding at all and there may be some amount of weight gain.
Doctor:But the advantage is that it has a very low failure rate
Doctor:Is there anything else?
User:what is the best day to go for ocp
Doctor:You can go anyday.
Doctor:The pills are usually given from the 5th day of the cycle
