Hello, I would be happy to help you today with your question.

When you are referring to "Copper T" you are referring to the copper IUD or 'intra-uterine device". The Copper IUD is a safe, common form of NON-hormonal birth control. It is very effective (not quite 100%) for of birth control. It can stay in for 8 years.

The other forms of birth control include:

1. The Mirena IUD (another IUD with hormones that act within the uterus)
2. Birth control pills
3. Depo-provera = birth control shot every 12 weeks
4. Nuvaring = a birth control ring put in the vagina for 3 weeks at a time

I hope this helps in making your decision!
