Its a major problem even for potters...using excessive copper in a glaze is dangerous and even illegal in some cases.

The point of the copper IUDis that it leaches coppar ions which removes the ability to swim in sperms. You can also get IUDs with a hormone as the active substance (makes the mucus really thick).
