3) IUD 
IUD aka Copper Intrauterine Device which is a small T-Shaped device that gets inserted into the uterus by your doctor. There are two types of IUD: Hormonal or Copper. Hormonal IUD's are small devices made out of plastic which contain the progesterone hormone that gets released slowly into the uterus, which keeps the sperm away. Hormonal IUD can last up to 5 years. Copper IUD's are made out of Copper and plastic but do not contain any hormones. Copper gets released into the uterus which is toxic for the sperm. Copper IUD's can last between 10-12 years.
