T-Care 300 A Device is an Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUD). T-Care 300A is a type of long-acting reversible contraception and is one of the most effective forms of birth control. It contains Copper in ionic form. The primary mechanism of action of T-Care 300 A is to prevent fertilization. Copper acts as a natural spermicide within the uterus. The presence of copper increases the levels of copper ions, prostaglandins, and white blood cells within the uterine and tubal fluids.The copper IUD is considered to be a true contraceptive and not an abortifacient
The T-shaped models with a surface area of 380 mm? of copper have the lowest failure rates. Early copper IUDs had copper around only the vertical stem, but more recent models have copper sleeves wrapped around the horizontal arms as well, increasing effectiveness. The lifespan of the devices range from 3 years to 10 years; however, some studies have demonstrated that the TCu 380A may be effective through 12 years.
Directions for use: Insertion: The copper IUD must be inserted by a qualified medical practitioner. A copper IUD can be inserted at any phase of the menstrual cycle, but the optimal time is right after the menstrual period.The procedure can cause cramping or be painful for some women.
Removal: Removal of the copper IUD should also be performed by a qualified medical practitioner.
