Where is Paragard® Inserted?

Paragard® is a small, soft, and flexible T-shaped device made primarily of plastic and copper that your healthcare provider places in your uterus at an office visit. Once it’s inserted, all you need to do is a simple monthly string check. Otherwise, you shouldn’t feel it at all and neither should your partner.

Do not use Paragard® if you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers. Less than 1% of users get a serious infection called pelvic inflammatory disease.
