it’s all about celebrating finding an IUD that has absolutely no hormones?
Huh? Its a dance routine where they are prancing around, liking a dog in a carriage instead of a baby and flirting – because……. an IUD with no hormones.
However, they also say it has copper. Not sure why this is new as there have been copper infused IUDs for maybe 40 years or so. And IUDs can give you heavier periods and menstrual cramps worse. It also isn’t recommended for women who are, or might be, allergic to copper, or women who have Wilson’s disease.
But then again, no mention of having this copper IUD in your body — I’ve heard a lot about the dangers of having mercury in your teeth, but copper is okay?
Certain liver or kidney conditions that prevent you from properly metabolizing copper can also expose you to copper toxicity, even if you’re not exposed to copper contamination. There might be other reasons that will contribute to copper toxcity.
Do your homework before deciding about “no hormones”.
If you love “no hormones” then you should know the symptoms of copper toxicity.
