Simply put, an IUD is a ‘T’ shaped device that is inserted into the uterus as a form of long acting (5-10 years) contraception.Let’s first talk about the main types of IUDs and how they work. There’s a hormonal type which is most commonly sold as Mirena and a lesser-used device sold under the brand name Skyla.But their problems, in my opinion, are far underestimated, reported, and realized.There is some evidence to support this, and I will share this with you.Copper is a main component of bile salts and therefore too much copper can greatly impact the health of the gallbladder as well as the liver.
You, or someone you know, may love your/their IUD and think it’s the safest, easiest, and most effective form of birth control.
Copper also influences estrogen and therefore as copper increases it is said that similarly estrogen does too.
Estrogen excess is involved with a host of problems such as PMS, excess bodyfat, and certain cancers.
Though the drug companies, researchers, and physicians say that the most common side effect is expulsion, (sometimes because of improper insertion by the doctor), a woman’s body is not meant to have a piece of metal constantly irritating her uterus – especially for five, if not ten years.
Think about walking around with a small pebble in your shoe 24 hours a day.
