How is the Paragard IUD placed?

Paragard is placed in your uterus by a healthcare provider during a routine, nonsurgical office visit.

To place Paragard, your healthcare provider will:

  • Slide a plastic tube containing Paragard into your uterus
  • Remove the tube, leaving Paragard inside your uterus
  • Trim the threads so they are just long enough for you to feel with your fingers when doing a self-check
