Continuous, long-lasting pregnancy protection.

ParaGard® works primarily by preventing the sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg, making it one of the most effective forms of birth control, with or without hormones. Generally your doctor places it in your uterus within minutes during a routine office visit. And when used as directed, ParaGard® has been demonstrated to be safe and effective for pregnancy prevention in numerous clinical trials for as long as you wish—two, five, even up to 10 years.


ParaGard® is designed to comfortably
fit a woman’s body—it’s so small, you’ll
forget it’s even there.*

*With ParaGard®, there's just a simple monthly self-check.
