Description
Lydia Cu Y 380 IUD is an intrauterine contraceptive device made of polyethylene. The stem is covered with copper wire and the total surface area of the copper is approximately 380 mm2.
What is unique to this model: Copper Y Trocar is only 1/3 the diameter of copper T Trocar low pain procedure; reduces doctor preparation time due to easy loading of device.
Action
Lydia Copper Y 380 offers almost complete protection against pregnancy, having a shelf-life of 5 years and effective period of 5 years. It does not affect lactation. This is a fully reversible method and protection is reversed on its removal.
Mechanism of Action:
Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD acts by greatly reducing the likelihood of fertilization. Data and analysis indicate that the main anti-fertility effect of copper bearing IUD's involves inhibition of egg or sperm transport and/or the capacity of sperm to fertilize egg. Reduced gamete transport and capacitation inhibits fertilization and occurs before the ovum reaches the uterine cavity. Continuous copper release in the uterine cavity from the copper wire enhances the contraceptive effect of Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD.

Caution For Usage
Procedure for Insertion Caution: Do not pick up and use any component that has fallen on the floor or table.
Do not empty the contents of the pouch in the instrument tray.
Do not use the solid rod to measure uterine cavity length.
Preparing the User: Operator should wear sterile gloves and use aseptic technique. He/She should gently explain to the client what he/she is doing.
Prior to insertion, the vagina and cervix should be cleansed with an antiseptic solution.
The cervix should be visualized by means of speculum and its anterior lip grasped with a tenaculum. Gentle traction on the tenaculum will tend to reduce the angle between the cervical canal and endometrial cavity and will greatly facilitate introduction of the uterine sound. The tenaculum should remain on the cervix, throughout the insertion of Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD so that gentle traction on the cervix can be maintained.
The uterine sound should then be introduced in the endocervical cavity until it reaches the fundus. As soon as the direction and length of the cervical canal and endometrial cavity have been determined, the Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD may be prepared for insertion.
Loading Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD: Open the sterile package or pull the arm of the "Frame" in the insertion tube, just before it is to be introduced into the uterus. The Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD should be prepared for insertion inside the sterile package as per the instructions given as follows.
Step 1: Ensure the Vertical arm of frame is fully inside the insertion tube and the opposite end of the insertion tube should be closer to the package bottom seal.
Step 2: Place the package on a clean, hard, flat surface, partially open the plastic covering from the end marked "OPEN" till halfway to the yellow flange. However, IUD and insertion tube are not to be withdrawn. While holding the tube firmly with one hand, release the threads from flange and draw the device into the insertion tube by grasping both the threads and gently pulling the device into the insertion tube until the knobs at the ends of horizontal arm cover the opening of the tube.
Step 3: Steadying the flange with one hand, pull the insertion tube until the lower edge of the flange indicates the measure obtained with the uterine sound, on the scale printed on insertion tube.
Step 4: Holding the package with open end up, and the flaps away from each other, hold the threads slightly stretched with one hand. Put the solid rod into the insertion tube to almost touch the bottom of pulled frame. This will ensure that the threads are lying straight in the tube and will not be disarranged by the solid rod. Be careful not to touch the tip of solid rod or brush against another surface as this could lead to the solid rod losing its sterility. Ensure that the longer dimension of the flange is in direction in which the horizontal arm will open in the uterus.
Step 5: The Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD is now ready for insertion. Peel the remaining cover of the package and lift the loaded tube, keeping it horizontal so that the frame or solid rod does not fall out. Be careful not to dislodge the frame by pushing the solid rod upward. Do not let insertion assembly touch any unsterile surface that may contaminate it.
Inserting the Loaded Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD: Step 1: Gently introduce the loaded insertion assembly through the cervical canal and advance upward until the flange comes into contact with the cervical os. Ensure that the flange is in the horizontal plane.
Step 2: Holding the solid rod stationary by one hand, withdraw the insertion tube; by your free hand, to touch ribbed part of solid rod, thereby the flange is removed from cervical os as well (approx. 1.5 cm). The arms of frame are now unfolded.
Step 3: Advance the insertion tube until the flange is touching the cervical os again. The Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD is now in contact with fundus.
Step 4: To release the device entirely from the insertion tube, hold the solid rod firmly and draw the tube back as far as the backstop.
Step 5: First, gently withdraw the solid rod (hold the insertion tube stationary while removing the solid rod) and then the insertion tube from the cervical canal to prevent pulling the device from the fundal position. Cut the threads so that they are visible only 3-4 cm outside the cervix.
Step 6: Assist woman from the table slowly (be alert to possible dizziness) and instruct how and when to check threads. Have her check the threads. Invite questions and instruct about a return visit as well as what to do, whom and how to contact for help, if needed.
Removal Instructions: Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD must be removed by a trained health care provider. This can be done easily and safely in the clinic and takes only few minutes. Removal is done by gently pulling one of the exposed threads. Excessive force in pulling the threads could result in breakage of threads. Some cramping or bleeding may be experienced during removal.
Do Not Re-Use: Do not re-use the Lydia Copper Y 380 IUD. It may result in loss of efficacy and infections.
On completion of the shelf life or on removal after use, dispose the item as per the local regulations governing disposal on non-recyclable waste/medical waste.
