Using Copper T as a birth control. How long can I use it? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
To maintain birth control, i have taken Copper t as an option for my wife, By 15Dec2012 it will complete 1 year
Now i have a doubt that when Copper t will expire. I am not able to remember the company name which we have taken.
Is she having any difficulties now?
more bleeding when she was period.
That is there from the day of using Copper T
Usually XXXXXXX T can be kept for long time.
Do you know what is the minimum duration of copper T
It varies from around 3 years to 10 years.
Can i assume you are confident that minimum 3 years
You can keep it for now. But you will have to confirm what type of Copper T and which manufacturer has given it.
Currently that is what my problem, How can i proceed
It is usually kept for a minimum period of 2-3 years, within my knowledge.
So you do not have to worry.
Is there any copper T with 1 year validity.
When you get an opportunity, it would be best to discuss it with a Gynaecologist.
Do you know what are the products we have in india
I have not known any with that short a life time.
I am not sure of the products and its manufacturers.
You can be confident that it will be useful for 2 yrs
Meantime, you could post a query at our website for gynaecologist regarding the same.
For example if it is 3 years of validity
after using of 1 year, is chances of getting pregnency will increase
And this medications would stay through out its lifetime.
No. They will be able to confirm about the lifetime of normal Copper T used in India. They would also be able to do the required annual check up after insertion of the Copper T.
As I said, you can be confident that it is safe for another 1 year.
Thank you doctor for the information provided by you.
But your wife needs to be evaluated every year after copper T insertion.
