What are contraindications for the copper t380a IUD but not the levonorgestrel-releasing IUD?

Allergy to copper or Wilson's disease are contraindications to the copper IUD that don't apply to the levonorgestrel IUD. In addition, severe anemia is a contraindication for the copper IUD, but may be an indication for the levonorgestrel IUD, particularly if the anemia is exacerbated by heavy periods.

What is the best birth control to have if you don't want periods?

Depending on the type you get, an IUD can pause or lessen your periods. A hormonal IUD is more likely than a copper IUD to stop your periods, and depending on your body mass, you may entirely stop your cycle. A lighter person (<125lb) is more likely to stop than a heavier person(>160lb) consult your doctor for more information.

Can your period stop with an IUD?

If you're using Mirena, the IUD that releases progestin, your period usually will stop, although you may have irregular spotting in the first weeks or months of use. If you're using the copper IUD, your periods will not stop. If your period has been regular since using the IUD, and then stopped, take a pregnancy test.

Regular periods till now. Spotting no period with IUD?

The Mirena can cause periods to stop, it releases a low level of synthetic progesterone. A copper IUD may cause periods to stop, but doesn't generally have this effect soon after placement. Depending on the type of IUD and the length of time it has been in place - you may want to check in with the doctor who placed it to see if you need a pregnancy test. Generally if an IUD is going to fail it does so in the first 3 months.

Can the copper coil stop working after 5 years?

Yes, the copper IUD can stop working after 5 years if it is one of the brands that only lasts for 5 years. If you're unsure which type of IUD you've got (e.g. whether or not it is the 5 year copper IUD) you may want to consider getting a new IUD, next time maybe consider a 10 year IUD.

Can you be pregnant when you have and IUD and having periods and is the IUD causing me to have my period?

You can, but it's very rare. Often, women spot during the first few days/weeks of pregnancy at around the time when their period would have been because the fertilised egg implants in the womb lining and ruptures some blood vessels and many women mistake this for their period.
