Paragard is placed in your uterus by a healthcare provider during a routine office visit. Placement is non-surgical and typically takes a few minutes.
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
