An intrauterine device (intra meaning within, and uterine meaning of the uterus) is a birth control device placed in the uterus, also known as an IUD or a coil (this colloquialism is based on the coil-shaped design of early IUDs).
MULTILOAD consists of a small plastic rod wound with copper wire and provided with two flexible arms and a nylon string.
primarily to prevent sperm from fertilising ova. IUDs induce a local inflammatory response, which in turn leads to lysosomal activation and other inflammatory changes that are spermicidal.The presence of metallic copper improves the contraceptive efficacy of MULTILOAD. The plastic body of MULTILOAD contains barium sulphate to render it radio-opaque.
The flexible side arms of MULTILOAD ensure that the IUD remains in position as high as possible against the fundus, without the uterine cavity being stretched.
The contraceptive influence of copper is related to the oxidation of copper atoms and the subsequent dissolution of the oxides in the intrauterine milieu. For MULTILOAD Cu250 and MULTILOAD Cu375 the mean daily release of copper amounts to about 30 micrograms.
The intrauterine presence of copper-releasing IUDs causes neither an increase in serum copper concentrations to a measurable degree nor an increase in serum ceruloplasmin concentrations. This is to be expected since the average daily copper release of IUDs is only about one-hundredth of the average daily copper intake via food.
It is imperative that a no-touch technique is employed throughout the insertion procedure to ensure sterile handling. The intrauterine device should not be used in the event of the inner packaging being damaged.
