Gold spiral - Gold-T - Gold-T mini

The gold coil is a coil of the latest IUD generation. Externally, it resembles the conventional copper T. What is new is the core of pure gold inside the copper wire winding. The precious metal strengthens the durability of the copper and thus extends the duration of use of the IUD.

Mode of action: The mode of action is comparable to that of other copper IUDs. The implantation of the fertilised egg is prevented and the mobility of the sperm is reduced. The hormone balance is not affected and ovulation is not prevented. The effect of the copper ions is enhanced by the gold core inside the copper wire winding.


Insertion: Like other IUDs, the gold IUD is inserted through the vagina, through the cervix and into the uterus. During the procedure there may be a pulling pain, but this is generally easy to bear. If desired, we can also insert the gold coil under a short anaesthetic.

Possible complaints and complications: Light bleeding, initial abdominal pain, heavier menstrual bleeding and spotting are possible. Slipping of the gold coil is possible, but rarely occurs.

Position control: The position of the IUD can be checked at any time via the retrieval thread that protrudes from the cervix. In addition, regular ultrasound examinations are recommended every 6 months to ensure the contraceptive effect. A check after the first menstrual period is particularly important.

Removal: The gold coil can be removed easily and painlessly at any time with the help of the retrieval thread. Afterwards, fertility quickly returns to normal. Pregnancy is possible again immediately.

Application period: 5 years

Security: Very high security with a Pearl index of 0.5 - 0.9.

Costs: The insertion of an IUD is a self-pay service and is not charged to the health insurance fund.
