UT 380® Standard CCDBrand: UT 380®
Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
A copper-based, non-hormonal intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) that prevents the fertilized egg from getting implanted in the uterus. This activity is reinforced in an ancillary manner by the presence of copper. Copper has a cytotoxic effect on gametes which causes damage to sperm, and inhibits fertilization. The UT 380® IUD is effective from the day it has been inserted.

- emergency post-coital intrauterine contraception (within 5 days of unprotected or poorly protected intercourse)
