Estrogens & IUDs
THE STORIES HERE PROVIDE A GLIMPSE OF THE DAMAGE RESULTING FROM THE COPPER IUD/ COPPER ACCUMULATION.
Did You Know: Factor V Leiden?
Approximately 5% of the population in the US, or upwards of 10%-15% of the population in northern European countries, have the genetic Factor V gene mutation, resulting in Factor V Leiden (thrombopholia). Those with this mutation are more susceptible to blood clotting / deep vein thrombosis. This can amplify the blood clotting risk associated with the Pill and from the calcification induced by excess copper. The vast majority of women are provided the Pill or their IUD without any investigation ever done on their FVL status. Since the testing for Factor V Leiden can be easily done through simple blood tests, should not every woman being put on the Pill or IUD deserve to first be informed about, and screened for, FVL? Such screening / diagnosis could potentially mean the difference between life and death for some women.
Did You Know: Increased Risk of Suicide?
"Among women who used hormonal contraceptives currently or recently, the risk of attempting suicide was nearly double that of women who had never used contraceptives. The risk was triple for suicide. The patch was linked to the highest risk of suicide attempts, followed by IUD, the vaginal ring and then pills."
HOWEVER, what the media and doctors aren't teaching our women is that the non-hormonal IUD also increases the risk, as the poll on the right shows. Visit these stories and cases to learn more about the potentially damaging emotional effects of excess copper (and the IUD).
Sex Differences in the HTMA Copper Levels of Youth: A Study
This study, available in full here, shows the mean copper increases in females as they enter adolescence. Between the ages of 6 to 18, male copper levels show some fluctuation but largely stay on the lower side. Females inherently have higher copper, increasing as they enter the teen years. This underscores the importance of testing young women before their estrogen rises in adolescence in order to correct potential impending copper imbalances before symptoms really start to show. .
