The Paragard® IUD was designed as a long-term birth control device. It’s made from t-shaped plastic with copper wire coiled around it. It is implanted in the uterus and passively prevents pregnancy, but the faulty design can cause these IUDs to break or cause damage to the uterus during removal. When this happens, serious complications can arise, and further surgery may be required to remove the broken pieces. In some more severe cases, a hysterectomy is required.
