¿Cómo previene el DIU el embarazo?

ID: ANH14130S106es
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Existen dos tipos de dispositivos intrauterinos. DIU hormonal. Y DIU de cobre. Para evitar el embarazo, el médico coloca un DIU dentro del útero de la mujer con el hilo colgando dentro de la vagina. Ambos tipos de DIU, hacen que el endometrio se inflame levemente, lo que libera células inmunes y sustancias químicas que matan los espermatozoides. Los DIU hormonales contienen un tipo sintético de progesterona denominado levonorgestrel. El levonorgestrel principalmente evita un embarazo espesando la mucosidad dentro del cuello uterino, lo que evita que los espermatozoides entren en el útero. También evita el engrosamiento del endometrio, de manera que es menos probable que reciba un óvulo fecundado.
