    Copper IUD or Mirena

    Initially i wanted ligation but found out Mt A dont have tis service due to is a christian hospital.

    Then found out more that tis procedure needs cut tummy eee, so i dont want .. Unless my tis delivery sway C sect. all my delivery is natural .

    ANyway found out that Copper IUD or Mirena is not bad also thou is not permanant.

    Copper IUD is $30 done at polyclinic afer menses and can last 3yrs ( correct me if i m wrong got the $$ from another forum dont know how accurate )

    Mirena is $600 to be done at Kandang Kerbau Hospital ( dont know got include doc fees anot LOL )

    i want to try the polyclinic 1 but dont know how is the side effects like. Menses heavy is no issue to me as my menses come 3 days or less. Main ting is will put on alot weight not?? Any comments?

    For MIrena i tink quite some will put on weight. And it will lessen menses.. I dont need less menses i already very less.

    Re: Copper IUD or Mirena

    I thought the main difference between copper IUD & Mirena is that the latter has time release hormones inside to prevent pregnancy (that explains the price, else the IUD is actually a very simple device)? Copper IUD is to physically block the sperms from meeting the egg by blocking the fallopian tube?
