Will a copper IUD work as emergency contraceptive 6 days after having unprotected sex?

Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
"Iffy": Eight days after conception may or may not prevent a fertilized ovum from implanting inside the uterus. A IUD is designed to produce early abortion of a recently implanted fertilized ovum or prevent implantation completely.
