Ejaculating in someone with Skyla IUD, is this something that should still be avoided reguardless of the 99% effective rate?

Okay: IUDs do not protect against STDs. Always use a condom when having sex to protect against STD if you don't know if your partner's STD status. Withdrawal method does not protect against STDs. ...Read more

Can you tell me what to expect with someone who has had experience with skyla IUD or mirena (levonorgestrel)?

Can you tell me what to expect with someone who has had experience with skyla IUD or mirena (levonorgestrel)?

Contraception: Both Mirena (levonorgestrel) and syla are very effective forms of birth control. The insertion takes 5-10 min, and you may have some cramping the first couple days. Then menstrual bleeding will likely decrease over the next few months, with some women no longer having periods. The removal only takes a couple mins, and again only has some crmaping. It is a great birth control, and you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I have the skyla IUD and he finished inside me..... should I get plan b?

No: One of the benefits of an IUD is it works passively, whether he finished in you or not. The withdrawal method is never effective birth control anyway. You can take it if you want, but it is unnecessary while you have an IUD. ...Read more

Is it okay to take Solaray Estrogen Pills if I have the Skyla IUD? Would it effect the IUD in any way?

Is it okay to take Solaray Estrogen Pills if I have the Skyla IUD? Would it effect the IUD in any way?

No: IUDs are better at their job than BCPs because once it is in you don't have to remember to take it every day. It is just there. You should not have to be taking a pill in addition. ...Read more

Is the Skyla IUD less effective than the Kyleena IUD? Please discuss specific pearl indices and failure rates.

Equally effective: These are both equally effective. There are quoted as over 99% effective. It is not likely that a Healthtap doctor can quote the Pearl index for each specific product of the top of their head but the manufacturers website will list this information inside the package insert describing the instructions for use. ...Read more

I've only had my skyla iud in for a week, last night he came inside me. Is there anything I should worry about?

I've only had my skyla iud in for a week, last night he came inside me. Is there anything I should worry about?

Probably not.: The IUD mainly works mechanically, by, not allowing the egg to implant. But the wise thing is to continue your previous method of contraception for about 1 month after any new methods (IUD) have been put in place. ...Read more

I never had any bleeding after Skyla Iud was inserted. Is that normal? I figured I would have bled for a few weeks after I got it put in.

Donot worry: Iud reacts in a different way, that is ok if you did not get the period, to be on a safe side just do the pregnancy test, if that test is negative I will not worry after that ...Read more

What do you suggest if I'm just wondering if anyone has had a skyla IUD or a mirena (levonorgestrel) and if so what side effects?

Talk to doctor: Women experience the Mirena (levonorgestrel) in different ways. Most women don't have any ill effects, and just enjoy the decreased bleeding. Many women will stop having periods, some have lighter periods, and some have irregular bleeding. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is not associated with weight gain, breast tenderness, headaches, etc. You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Have skyla iud. Was given xulane (in addition to iud) to stop menstrual bleeding. Second week on patch and I'm bleeding. Thoughts? Normal?

Have skyla iud. Was given xulane (in addition to iud) to stop menstrual bleeding. Second week on patch and I'm bleeding. Thoughts? Normal?

Follow the plan: Since patches have a distinct regulation mode to get your body to behave as it should. Some irregular bleeding may occur in the beginning of the patch in the first few months. So keep the faith and follow the plan. If it doesn't work for you because of your irregularity or whatnot, you will know after 3-4 months. And if you have already waited that long, then visit your GYN or family physician ...Read more

I have the skyla IUD and usually everything is normal but, I just had a period 2 weeks ago and I just started again and it's very heavy. Concerns?

IUD check: Irregular bleeding is not rare with Skyla. Since the bleeding is heavy this time though feel for your string to make sure it is in the right place. If you can not feel the string then avoid intercourse without a condom and schedule a visit to have your doctor confirm the proper location. Most irregular bleeding with an IUD stops on its own without intervention. ...Read more

I have had the Skyla IUD for 6 months and not had a period since; however, my bleeding during ovulation gets heavier with each month. Is this normal?

I have had the Skyla IUD for 6 months and not had a period since; however, my bleeding during ovulation gets heavier with each month. Is this normal?

Defeats purpose: The purpose of the Skyla IUD is to make women have lighter and shorter cyclical bleeding. It may cause irregular spotting/bleeding. As long as the irregular bleeding/spotting and any cyclical bleeding is perceived less bothersome than the monthly bleeding pattern without the Skyla, you have a winner. If not, you may as well have the Skyla removed and try an alternative. ...Read more

I have never had a yeast infection in my entire life and now that I have skyla IUD I have had 5 in a row. Could it be the iud? My gyno says not posibl

I have never had a yeast infection in my entire life and now that I have skyla IUD I have had 5 in a row. Could it be the iud? My gyno says not posibl

Unlikley: We do not see more yeast infections in women who have any form of IUD, or any other birth control for that matter. However, 1 in 10 women will experience recurrent vaginal yeast infections for no obvious reason - that can be treated and suppressed with very good results. Ask your doctor about suppressive medication for the yeast. ...Read more

2 months I got the skyla IUD. No period in July and not sexually active since April. Is this normal?

2 months I got the skyla IUD. No period in July and not sexually active since April. Is this normal?

Sometimes: Skyla and Mirena (levonorgestrel) are IUD's that put out a little bit of progesterone hormone continuously. There may be some irregular bleeding and spotting the first 3-6 months, but after that, one's periods can become shorter, lighter, or not happen at all. If an IUD has no hormones, one's periods should continue to happen as usual. For reassurance, one can do a home urine pregnancy test (are very accurate). ...Read more

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud.?

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud.?

Sometimes one does: See more decidual (lining) tissue than blood in a menstrual period...rarely the whole uterine lining will be passed in one piece...a decidual cast. This will usually be an isolated event, and the next period will have the usual lining mixed with blood. The Skyla IUD is associated with lighter periods as well. If persists/more questions, return to your Doc. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Hi, I've had my Skyla IUD for 2 years now, and every so often I experience strange pelvic pain. It used to be after I had a lot of sex, but now I'm now I'm not, and each time I've had it checked (twice), the doctor says they can see/feel the strings?

OK: As long as your pain in infrequent, minor, does not stop you from functioning, transient, with no other symptoms, just monitor the situation, you still have about a year with Skyla. Though Skyla may be causing the pelvic pain, it is not necessarily so. ...Read more

Is dry mouth a side effect of Skyla IUD?

Dry mouth: IUD??: The short answer is no, the IUD does not cause a dry mouth. Even IUD's containing hormones have so little in them that the effects are limited to the local uterine environment, and are not systemic. ...Read more

Which carries the higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, Skyla IUD or the mini pill taken perfectly?

Which carries the higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, Skyla IUD or the mini pill taken perfectly?

Neither: The IUD increases one's risk for ectopic pregnancy only very very slightly. The mini pill doesn't increase your risk of ectopic. Statistically I wouldn't make a decision based on these 2 forms of birth control vis-v-vis ectopic given how little influence they would have. IUDs are very safe and a lot more effective at preventing pregnancy than the mini-pill. ...Read more

I recently got a skyla iud. No test before hand, what if I was early pregnant when they placed it? Would they see it? Would it kill it?

I recently got a skyla iud. No test before hand, what if I was early pregnant when they placed it? Would they see it? Would it kill it?

Miscarriage risk: This can only be a guess but I don't believe the Skyla would directly disrupt a pregnancy. Generally IUD's are an infection risk in pregnancy, which can trigger a miscarriage or premature labor. They should be removed if at all possible even though doing that might itself cause a miscarriage. Since we don't deliberately place IUD's during pregnancy it is hard to predict risk with any accuracy. ...Read more

Severe cramping and constipation the day after having the Skyla IUD inserted. Is this normal? Also bleeding consistently. When should I expect an end?

Cramping: Some mild cramping and spotting may occur after Skyla insertion. Constipation occurs over several days so it would not be related to your IUD inserted yesterday. If your constipation has been going on a while that may be the cause of your cramping and pain. If concerned schedule follow up with your doctor for evaluation ...Read more
