Choose the right one among the statements given below:
A. IUDs are generally inserted by the user herself

B. IUDs increase phagocytosis reaction in the uterus

C. IUDs suppress gametogenesis

D. IUDs once inserted need not be replaced

Answer :

IUDs - Intra Uterine Devices (IUDs) are devices inserted by doctors or expert nurses only in the uterus through vagina. So option (a) is not correct.

IUDs do not suppress gametogenesis this takes place in the ovary, while lUDs are inserted in the uterus. So option (c) is not correct.


IUDs need to be replaced if required. IUDs comes for a specific period of time. So, option (d) is incorrect.


Non-mediated IUDs increase phagocytosis of sperms within the uterus and the Cu ions released suppress sperm motility and the fertilising capacity of sperms.


So the correct answer is option (b).
