What is Paragard?
Paragard is an intrauterine device (IUD) used as a form of birth control in women. The device is hormone-free and made of plastic with a thin layer of copper wire that is used to prevent pregnancy. Paragard and any other IUD is placed in the uterus by a physician and can serve as a contraceptive for several years.
