What is an IUD?
An IUD or IUCD (intra-uterine contraceptive device) is a form of contraceptive and involves a device being placed inside the uterus (womb) to prevent pregnancy.
An IUD is a small plastic device in the shape of a 'T' with plastic strings attached.
What is Your Urinary Tract?
Your urinary system includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. This system helps to remove waste from your body.
The kidney filters waste from your blood. Tubes called ureters carry these wastes or urine from your kidneys to your bladder, where it is stored until it exits the body through the urethra. All of these components can become infected, but most infections involve the lower tract.
