Other women, though, are not as fortunate. The copper released into the body can have adverse effects, including migraines, weight gain, lethargy, and even IUD hair loss. Curlies may also notice a change in curl patterns and overall hair health.
According to Dr. Lawrence Wilson with The Center for Development, a copper imbalance is actually common, though it is often overlooked because it’s difficult to detect. While copper does serve our bodies in important ways, the problem comes in when we have an excessive amount of copper. Dr. Wilson states that an abundance of copper can cause changes in various parts of our body, including our nervous system, skeletal system, circulatory system and our reproductive system. Additionally, a high level of copper in the system can lead to personality changes. With high levels of copper affecting virtually every part of our body, it’s little wonder that it’s overlooked as the culprit to so many problems.
Since the Paraguard releases copper into our bodies, this can sometimes result in an abundance of copper. Exorbitant amounts of copper (copper toxicity) can result in hair loss.
If you’re experiencing hair loss and also have an IUD inserted, it’s worth looking into and discussing with your doctor whether the IUD could be the culprit.
