Just to clarify, in case any women are curious, the IUD works by making a "inhospitable environment" in the uterus for a fertilized egg (not the sperm, as the sperm don't really "hang out" in the uterus)...but the IUD can work by stopping the sperm from reaching the egg in the fallopian tube. Just a slight clarification, as the exact mechanisms aren't fully realized in regards to the IUD even in the medical community, but the "known" factors are it changes the lining of the uterus to prevent a fertilized egg from attaching (our uterine lining changes throughout our cycle, to create a hospitable environment, so the IUD stops that cycle).
