Brief Answer:
Copper T is better option.

Detailed Answer:

Hello again,

As your babies are very small you should not go for tubectomy . So copper T is a better option for you.

Though the chances of infection are there in your case with copper T as you are diabetic as well. You can use copper T for 5-10 yrs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Immediately after completion of your menses.

Hi again,
You are most welcome.

Vaginal infection is very common in diabetic patients but it is not necessary. You can go for copper T insertion immediately after menses.
