Medical research reveals a potential connection between copper IUDs like Paragard and a brain injury called pseudotumorcerebri (PTC), also referred to as intracranial hypertension (ICH).
Pseudotumorcerebri occurs when the intracranial pressure increases.
Medication can help with the headaches, but it may prove ineffective and may require invasive optic nerve treatment or even brain surgery in some cases.
If PTC is not diagnosed right away, it may result in irreparable complications, such as blindness. Symptoms associated with the condition are similar to those of a brain tumor, and are most common in women of childbearing age, and include:
At times, symptoms that might seem like they have improved can reappear months or even years later. Recent IUD studies have acknowledged a rising number of PTC cases in women using this type of contraceptive method, even non-hormonal ones like Paragard T 380A.
