Mode of action: As with conventional copper IUDs, the released copper ions weaken the mobility of the sperm and thus prevent fertilisation of the egg. The hormone balance is not affected. Ovulation takes place normally.
Insertion: The carrier thread with the threaded copper beads is inserted into the uterus through a narrow tube. The three-dimensional spherical shape of the IUB only unfolds in the uterine cavity. If possible, the insertion should take place during the period. If desired, we can also place the copper bead ball under a short anaesthetic.
Possible discomfort and complications: As with all IUDs, light bleeding, initial abdominal pain, heavier menstrual bleeding and spotting are possible. During the procedure and in the first few hours afterwards, there may be a pulling pain, but this is generally well tolerated. In rare cases, the copper bead ball can be expelled again.
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: A double retrieval thread allows for easy removal of the IUB. When the copper bead ball is pulled, the spherical shape of the carrier thread dissolves again, allowing painless removal.
Application period: 5 years
Costs: The insertion of an IUD is a self-pay service and is not charged to the health insurance fund.
