Who Uses IUDs?
An intrauterine devices (IUD) is a form of contraception that’s inserted in the uterus to prevent pregnancy. Copper IUDs work by acting as a natural spermicide, while hormonal IUDs work by releasing hormones that help prevent pregnancy. Although most healthy women can and do use IUDs, both types of IUDs have been linked to serious injuries.
IUD injuries can lead to expensive medical bills, time away from work, and constant pain. If you or someone you love suffered an IUD injury, Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough is here for you.
