Is Copper T safe to use? Will there be any after effects when I want to conceive again? - Online Doctor Chats
I have a question regarding contraceptive methods
I have been enquiring about Copper T
Is it a safe method to use
may i know if u already have a kid ?
Will there be any after effects when I want to conceive again
and how many years have u been married ?
Yes I have a 1 yr old daughter
Ive been married for 3.5 yrs now
yes, in your case, it is a safe method
and it has a high sucess rate
I have been having heavy menstrual flow during the last few months
especially after the cycles started after my delivery
will copper t insertion worsen the situation?
yes, for the first 1-2 cycles, you may have increased bleeding , and some pain
but, it is not to worry about ,
as time passes it will subside
ok..And is the insertion a painful?
no , it is not
sorry but im apprehensive
you may have discomfort, due to the process, but , it is usually painless, and will take less than 5 mins
I understand, no need to be sorry
ok. and my question on if there are any after effects after i get it removed?
No, once you remove, there are no effects, other than this that u can get pregnant, within the same cycle , or soon after, unless u use other forms of contraception
I am more worried as I did have difficulties in conceiving the first time since my cycles were irregular
did u have issues like PCOS ?
and we had planned for the first two yrs after marriage
- means cysts in the ovary ?
no.there were no such issues
just dat my cycles were irrerular
a copper T, does not affect your cycles
and it also does not prevent conception
ok. thanks doctor..I was confused as I got mixed reviews from my friends on the same. One of them had it on for 5 yrs and now she isnt able to conceive.
yes, it has to be removed, if she wants to get pregnant again
she has done that
but is facing problems in conceiving now
there are other causes like scarring of the fallopian tube, or any prior infections, or other medical causes which may be the reason
but, if properly managed, and in uncomplicated cases, copper T can be safe and useful
there are other means like Depoprovera Injections, which also can help in preventing pregnancy
But for all matter, the best and easiest way is Oral contraceptive pills, which need to be taken daily and they are very safe and no side effects in otherwise normal women
I have another concern, I have developed quite a bit of facial and body hair after my marriage
some docs i had consulted said its due to hormonal imbalance.hence my cycles were getting irrerugular too
can u tell me if your mother or sisters also had such issues ?
my mother did have some amount of facial hair but not as bad as mine
mine is getting prominent by day..
and Im not sure what to do about it..as of now I am getting it threaded as a temporary solution
im not obese, I am quite skinny
nope..no cysts , i did get a ultrasound done too'
i have read n heard about permanent hair removal, are they helpful and what sort of removal should I go for.
do u have thick dark black hair on the face , which are longer too ?
you need to know that some of the measures are expensive and they can also cause scarring, during the process
thick short hair on the chin and very thin but prominent hair on the cheeks
Laser therapy, and thermal epilation are methods to remove unwanted hair , but they need to be done in centers with good experienced people
have u shown them to ur current doctor ?
what was the imprression, given by her / him ?
it is common for some women, to have them and unless they are very severe there is no need for any treatment
You can consult with a dermatologist, who can examine you and give you proper advice
but, before, that, you should make sure, that you have your periods, normally, and you dont have issues like irregular cycles, excess bleeding, etc
