How good is the NOVA T iud as against other contraceptives. Does it have less side effects?
Let me say what a HUGE fan I am of the IUD. I’m entirely too fertile and the IUD is just as effective as a tubal ligation. The Nova T is a copper IUD and is good for 5 years. I just had my Paragard IUD (also copper) removed after 12 yrs and had Mirena inserted. Since there are no hormones, you eliminate any of those side effects. The most common side effect is a heavier period. For me, I had heavier periods for a few months and then my body seemed to adjust. As you know, everything has potential side effects. Unfortunately, we don’t know how we’ll respond until we try it. Side effects Increased menstrual bleeding; spotting; dysmenorrhoea; lower abdominal or back pain; anaemia. Pregnancy in the case of the method failure may be ectopic. Pelvic inflammatory disease may occur during the use of Nova T 380. The Nova T 380 or parts of it may perforate or penetrate the uterine wall. Allergic skin reactions may occur. Special precautions Pelvic infection: The insertion tube protects Nova T 380
