Copper IUD

Oct 26, 2021 | Marriage and Divorce, Medicine and treatment


I need to know if using a copper iud as a contraception is permissible in Islam. Currently I’m using progesterone only pill and of course as its name says it’s hormone based, and I’m sure in long term it may have side effects to my health. Whilst a copper iud has no hormones, and the side effects seem insignificant to me compared to ingesting hormones
