Hello Mr.Abdul Majeed;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The IUD used specially copper-T is a regular one and a multiload.The regular has a life of 3 yrs and the multiload of 5 yrs.Another IUD which is hormonal has come up recently and is named Mirena which again has a life of 5 yrs but it is costly as well as being hormonal it is not suited for everybody.If you want a better option go for copper-T which ever you like if your wife can tolerate it will be best.Please consult a Gynaecologist close by for details and the procedure.
Thanks

I have my 2nd iud. So been using the iud for about 8 years now. I have not had any form of a period and minimal spotting in years. For the last month i have had on and off spotting of dark red to red blood. Just enough for panty liner. About 3 weeks i passed what looked like flesh/tissue. Like a latex ballon piece. Was off white color. Is that normal? Also had breast tenderness/nausea so wondered if could have been a tubal pregnancy as well. Was doing some reading and saw this. Thank you for your time

Hi, My boyfriend and I have been having sex regularly, and I haven t gotten my period yet. This is normal for me because I have a mirena IUD and my periods can span between 30 and 90 days. I ve been taking pregnancy tests and all have come up negative. I woke up for work and had bright red blood when wiped from going pee so I though my period had come. I cleaned up and put in a tampon. When I got to work not even 2 hours later I felt gushing so I went back to the bathroom only to find it was a water like substance. I m very concerned and so is my partner. What could it be?

Hi, I went to doctor and tried to insert copper t on the 5th day of my cycle. It was very painful and the doctor tried 4 times without any success and said the uterus was closed. I have two children and youngest is 18 month old. I ve had c section both times. Is there something wrong with me or is this a common problem.

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
