Hi, my name is Florencia Kot Hansen and I am an advocator for women’s reproductive rights.

In 2012 I suffered great physical and emotional harms from the non-hormonal IUD. After going from one doctor to the other, I discovered that these IUDs have copper and that excess copper can produce depression, panic attacks, insomnia, acne, joint pain, hair loss, etc. I had all those symptoms but no doctor linked them to the IUD.

However, in my research, I found out that many scientists and health professionals knew about the harming power of excess copper and were already trying to find ways to heal this imbalance. So once I recovered, I’ve started working on generating awareness about this subject.
I am from Argentina and I could survive this nightmare thanks to the fact that I knew English because I looked for answers on the Internet in Spanish but found no meaningful information. However, in English, I could find all the answers.

So my first step was to create a blog (cuidadoconeldiudecobre.wordpress.com) where I translated all the important articles into Spanish. This blog has now more than 300 visits per day. I received hundreds of email and comments of women thanking me for saving their lives.
Then I started a YAHOO GROUP (groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/copperiuddetox/info) for women to share their experiences. There was no facebook by that time so this group was a key tool for women to feel supported in this long road. I say LONG because after you remove your IUD it takes time to go back to normal. Sometimes even years…

Then I continued my awareness crusade by uploading videos in youtube telling my story (youtu.be/Kl8UNB6cwEk) and by creating a Facebook (@cuidadoconeldiu) and a Twitter (@cuidadoconeldiu) account… All this, while mothering two young children and having a fulltime job!

The reason why I decided to start a Patreon page now is that I want to devote myself fulltime to this very important endeavor. Also, because I am taking a step forward. I wrote a documentary called “When bodies talk” based on my 6 years research in order to tell the world what copper IUDs can produce to some women and also to analyze what is going on with the contraceptive market. I have already produced a trailer (vimeo.com/287342310) and I want to devote all my energy to fundraising. I joined forces with a great documentary Director, Hernán Vilchez, so I can produce a high-quality film.

In sum, I want to invite you to join me in this crusade of bringing awareness about copper IUDs’ potential harms. I want to have the means that will allow me to continue managing my social networks and devoting my time to fundraising for this important film project.
