In brief: Safe and effective
The IUD is one of the safest and most cost-effective ways to prevent pregnancy.
It is almost as good as getting your tubes tied or a vasectomy in preventing pregnancy.

In brief: No hormones!
The CopperIUD is one of the BEST forms of birth control available.
Non-hormonal (no effect on fertility/acne/headaches/nausea/wt gain/bloating/blood clots) and VERY safe (except if you have Wilson's dz/Copper allergy). Only risk is a heavier period and complications w/ insertion (RARE). Immediately effective to prevent pregnancy, but DOES NOT protect against STIs. OK for women who haven't had kids
