Can Paragard Copper Iud Can Affect My Sex Drive
Yes they: Are very softGet a more detailed answer ›
Better than condoms: The CopperIUD is one of the BEST forms of birth control available. Non-hormonal (no effect on fertility/acne/headaches/nausea/wt gain/bloating/blood clots) and VERY safe (except if you have Wilson's dz/Copper allergy). Only risk is a heavier period and complications w/ insertion (RARE). Immediately effective to prevent pregnancy, but DOES NOT protect against STIs. OK for women who haven't had kids ...Read more
Is my paragard IUD causing me to get dizzy, feel confused, I feel off balanced? I think it has something to do with the copper? Anything I can take? :
Unlikely: These aren't common symptoms or side effects for the paraguard iud. Sometimes women have increased bleeding or irregular bleeding with paraguard, but not confusion and imbalance. If you were having a lot of bleeding, you could be anemic and these would be symptoms of anemia. Consider seeing your family physician or gp to discuss these other symptoms you are having. Best wishes. ...Read more
Paragard: Here is an excellent article by Mayo Clinic regarding possible problems: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/tests-procedures/paragard/basics/risks/prc-20013048. Here is the company site: http://paragard. Com/safety-and-side-effects. Aspx. With symptoms of hair loss or fatigue - I would not assume that is related to the IUD. Your physician can assess to determine the cause of these sx's. ...Read more

I had sex a gentleman on a Thursday. Then on Friday I had my copper IUD removed and had sex. Could I get pregnant from thursday?
Possibly: The deposits of Thursday can remain active for a couple of days in your tubes, and fertilize an egg coming through. Since the coil was removed Friday, it would not be around to receive and interfere with implantation if it was to occur. However, the trauma of coil removal might have made the area unsuitable for implantation. It's always good to overlap methods of BC if you are in the process of change ...Read more
Is it true that after putting a copper IUD you have to wait one month before having unprotected sex? My obgyn told me its not true
No waiting period: After a copper IUD is inserted for effective contraception. It is not unusual to have some cramping and scant bleeding after insertion for a few days, but afterwards should be ok. Sexually transmitted infections are still possible, so use condrom protection as well unless you are in a long term committed relationship. ...Read more

Have paragard iud. Its in place and I had sex. Now I have no period this month. I'm about a day late.
Low chance: With the Paragard there is a very low chance of pregnancy with perfect use (making sure your strings are in place monthly, etc). With just one day late I would not jump to the pregnancy conclusion just yet, it might just be a slightly irregular cycle which can happen, it's just not that common. If it becomes more than a week late, have your doc check your strings and make sure everything is ok. ...Read more
Last two days I've had cramping after sex. I have paragard iud, is this normal? No discharge, smells and strings still in place. Normal?
Can be normal: The first six months after getting an iud, there are more cramps then you are probably used to. However those symptoms should improve over time. You can also have cramps midcycle when you're ovulating. If you have had the iud for a while, and this is the first time you're having this symptom, it may be a sign of something else. If this symptom persists w/ your next cycle, I would see your doctor. ...Read more
If she had sex a week ago and she has iud (copper iud) and she was ovulating. What are the chances of get pregnant? I know the iud is 99% effective
Very low: As you mentioned, the copper IUD is an effective product with about 1% risk of pregnancy in any year of use. Compared to all other forms of birth control the only one better is abstinence. Use of any secondary form like condoms can reduce the risk of STD's but adds little to the BC effect. ...Read more

Why would I be bleeding 12 days before my period is due? I did have sex this month but I am on the copper iud?
Ask gynecologist...: Asking your gynecologist would be the most direct way to get an answer. I am not gyn-doc but urologist and based on what I have known about paragard IUD, which is a T-shaped device positioned inside uterus with string hanging out of cervix. Clinically, deep coitus should not be an issue although IUD has its own risk. In reality, an average penis should induce no hurt to women. More? Ask gyn-doctor ...Read more
Not well studied: The copper IUD is the most effective method of emergency contraceptive if inserted within 5 days of unprotected intercourse.
