The effectiveness, mechanism of action and safety of copper in IUDs are briefly reviewed. In 1 study, 18.3 pregnancies occurred per 100 women during the 1st year of use of a T-shaped IUD whereas with a copper wire wound around the device, only 2 pregnancies occurred. The mechanism of action may be related to infiltration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in the uterine mucosa or to a toxic effect of copper on the embryo. The dissolved copper ions appear to be the actual contraceptive agent since a large fraction of copper wire placed in a human uterus dis appears within a year and metals with low solubility are not effective. The duration of effectiveness and the safety of these experimental devices have not been established.
