I have an answer that is different.
The answer is that we do not know.
Only preliminary studies have been done.
You will see that in one, copper does not increase.
In another, significantly.
When there are such preliminary studies, the answer is not sorted out until clinical trials are done.
I would mention that excess cooper, as you probably know , is a free radical enhancer...which is related to ageing and other negative factors.
I doubt this occurs with the IUD, but the device may well contribute to overall copper intake, albeit in small amounts.
Conclusions can not be drawn at this point.
It is possible that you have extra copper, and other elements from an IUD.
