Hello,

The copper IUD (e.g. Paragard, Mona Lisa, T-safe) does not contain any hormones, so there is no direct way that it would affect weight.

Copper IUD users still gain weight in long-term studies though, just like people who aren't using any contraception will gain weight with time and age.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. AJEET SINGH, General & Family Physician
