IUD: Can it fail? How much? Does it hurt to put? Who can not use it?

Women’s lifestyles have changed and contraception has followed these changes. Options with lower doses of hormones or without formulations, more practical and with less possibility of forgetting have gained more space. In this sense, the IUD (intrauterine device) gains even more space and adepts. I’ve already talked about the IUD here and today to complete I’m returning to answer the most frequent questions.

One of the first questions people look at when deciding on this method is how much the IUD costs and how much to insert. There are many options and prices vary. The value of the copper IUD varies from R$100 to 300, whereas the silver model usually varies from R$250 to 450. Among the hormonal models, the value of Mirena and Kyleena are similar and usually varies from R$800 to 1,500. The amount that professionals charge to insert varies depending on the place of care, material used and IUD, ranging from R$ 500 to 2,500. How does the IUD work?
