A device that your physician inserts into the uterus in an office procedure, there are hormonal and nonhormonal varieties of IUD that can last for three, five or 10 years. Although an IUD does not have effects over the long term, possible side effects may include some irregular vaginal bleeding at first followed by the absence of menses for some women. Cramping and pelvic pain may also occur for some who choose the IUD. Used by women around the world and widely accepted, fertility typically returns within one month after the device is removed.
