IUDs are T-shaped contraceptives that are placed in the uterus. There are two types of tools that you can use, namely those that contain hormones and which are coated with copper. This family planning tool which is often referred to as spiral KB is quite popularly used by women who want to delay or don't want to get pregnant again. But before you decide to use an IUD, read first about the advantages and disadvantages of the IUD here.

What are the advantages of an IUD?

Spiral KB is reported to be 99.7% effective for preventing pregnancy for many years without having to bother remembering the schedule of taking medication, changing equipment, or refilling prescriptions. Spiral hormone KB types can last for 3-5 years, while copper spiral KB can prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years.

This advantage makes the IUD the most effective pessary compared to other contraceptives.

In addition, other advantages of spiral KB are:

  • Can be released at any time, without affecting fertility. Once released, your fertility can return to normal.
  • Safe to use for nursing mothers.
  • Reducing the risk of cervical cancer and endometrial cancer.
  • Does not make fat like a birth control pill.
  • Hormone IUDs can reduce PMS pain and cramps, reduce blood pressure that is too heavy during menstruation, and reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.

What are the shortcomings of an IUD?

There are advantages of course there are usually disadvantages too. Besides having various benefits for you, spiral KB also has several disadvantages, including:

  • The spiral KB position can shift, which can increase the risk of being pregnant.
  • Abdominal discomfort when newly installed.
  • For the first few months, you can experience irregular bleeding spots.
  • It should not be used in women who have pelvic inflammatory disease or active sexually transmitted diseases; being pregnant or possibly pregnant; or have a problem or disease related to the uterus.
  • Your periods are heavier and are accompanied by cramps when you use copper KB.
  • While when using hormonal spiral KB, your menstruation will be lighter and shorter or may not menstruate at all.
  • Does not prevent you from the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. So during sex, you also still need to use a condom.
