I use copper T IUD, but ther is IUD that does not have copper and Mirena as well.

its recomended for people who have given birth at least once. its inserted anytime during your periods by a gynae. for the 1st 6 months your periods become heavy and you spot as well in between. after your first periods after the insertion, go for a check up to check if its still in place thereafter you can relax. you can remove it when you want to conceive again. it can be kept for a period of 5 years inside you.

its 98% safe so you need to use pills.
