Yes: There a 2 types of iud available in the usa - the type with copper and the type with progesterone. Neither one is impacted by being hypothyroid or by taking thyroid medication. And those iuds don't impact thyroid medication or the thyroid. So if you wish to use an iud you can.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
