Drug Description


Copper T IUD 380A is indicated for preventing pregnancy in women capable of reproduction for a maximum of 10 years. 

This contraceptive device functions by consistently emitting copper, which impedes sperm transportation and egg fertilization and potentially prevents implantation. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Copper T IUD 380A, carefully read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist. Seek guidance from your doctor or pharmacist for any clarifications needed. 

Copper T IUD 380A is a small, flexible device inserted into the uterus by a healthcare professional in a clinical setting. It can remain in place for up to 10 years, but it can be removed at any time by a healthcare professional if you wish to become pregnant. 

Once the device is inserted, arrange a follow-up appointment after your initial menstrual period to ensure it remains correctly positioned. 

Periodically, Copper T IUD 380A may shift or dislodge. It is advisable to perform monthly self-checks to ensure proper positioning. You can find guidance on how to conduct these checks in the patient information leaflet or from your healthcare provider. 

If the device dislodges or if you are unable to feel the threads, promptly contact your doctor and use backup contraception (like condoms or spermicide) until directed otherwise by your doctor. 

Copper T IUD 380A should be taken out within 10 years from the insertion date. If ongoing contraception is needed, it can be replaced with a new one during the removal procedure. 

Side Effects 

The potential adverse effects of Copper T IUD 380A are outlined below. Promptly inform your doctor if any of these symptoms persist or worsen. 

Common Side Effects 

  • Temporary pain, bleeding, or dizziness during and shortly after device placement 
  • Increased menstrual flow and duration 
  • Frequent vaginal bleeding (spotting) between periods 

Serious Side Effects 

  • Abnormal alterations in vaginal bleeding: 
    • Persistent spotting 
    • Abrupt heavy bleeding 
    • Missed periods 

Inform your doctor immediately if any of the serious effects above are experienced. 

Copper T IUD 380A may increase the likelihood of a rare yet severe pelvic infection known as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID can lead to lasting harm to reproductive organs and infertility. The risk is heightened in individuals with multiple sexual partners, a history of sexually transmitted disease (STD) infection, or prior PID.  

Promptly inform your doctor if you experience PID symptoms, such as: 

  • Unexplained fever/chills 
  • Lower abdominal/pelvic discomfort 
  • Pain during intercourse 
  • Genital sores 
  • Unusual vaginal discharge 

Allergic Reactions 

In rare cases, Copper T IUD 380A may trigger a severe allergic response. Urgent medical assistance should be sought if any symptoms of an allergic reaction are noticed, including: 

  • Severe dizziness 
  • Skin rash 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Swelling or itching of the face, tongue, or throat 

This list does not cover all side effects of Copper T IUD 380A. Should you experience any unlisted effects, consult your doctor or pharmacist. 


Before using Copper T IUD 380A, inform your doctor if you have any known allergies, particularly to copper. 

Disclose to your doctor your medical background before using Copper T IUD 380A to ensure its appropriateness for your condition, especially if you have a history of: 

  • Cancer, particularly uterine or cervical cancer 
  • Unexplained vaginal bleeding 
  • Uterine issues, like fibroids or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) 
  • Wilson’s disease (a disorder affecting copper metabolism) 
  • Conditions weakening the immune system or increasing infection risk, such as HIV, leukemia, or IV drug abuse 
  • Recent pregnancy 
  • Or currently breast-feeding 

Be sure to inform your doctor of all the medicines you are currently taking or plan to start or discontinue, including prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal products, to prevent any potential interaction with Copper T IUD 380A. 

Before undergoing a medical procedure involving heat therapy or an MRI test, inform your healthcare provider and the testing staff that you are using Copper T IUD 380A. Adjustments may be necessary for your procedure or MRI test. 

Copper T IUD 380A does not offer protection against sexually transmitted diseases (e.g., HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia) for you or your partner. 

Copper T IUD 380 must not be utilized if you are already pregnant. In case of pregnancy or suspicion of pregnancy, promptly inform your doctor. 

The transfer of copper from this device to breast milk is uncertain but unlikely. Seek medical advice prior to breastfeeding.
