What is the difference between a copper IUD and a hormonal IUD?

Intrauterine devices, often called coils, come in two main types. The IUD, also known as Copper IUD, copper coil or Cu-IUD works mainly by stopping the sperm from fertilising the egg. It starts working as soon as it has been fitted. This is the kind of coil that can be used as emergency contraception. The copper IUD is hormone-free and generally will not change the regularity of your periods.
