Lippes Loop

The coil was pulled into a thin tube which was then inserted through the cervix and into the womb. When the coil was shoved from the tube by means of a pin, it reassumed its original form.

In order to demonstrate the position of the coil after insertion, it has been embedded, in the photo, in a pink plastic disc that is suggestive of the shape of the uterus.
