If I get the withdrawal bleed after mirena removal, can I concluded that I'm not pregnant ? My iud expelled 3 days after having sex ( with a condom)

If I get the withdrawal bleed after mirena removal, can I concluded that I'm not pregnant ? My iud expelled 3 days after having sex ( with a condom)

Not definitively: To conclude that you're not pregnant definitively, you would need to have another period 28 days after your withdrawal bleed, negative blood pregnancy test 28 days after mirena expulsion, or a negative transvaginal ultrasound to confirm lack of fetus. But honestly, it's a pretty good marker of non-pregnancy. ...Read more

Are we okay to not use condoms if i'm on the paragard copper iud?

Are we okay to not use condoms if i'm on the paragard copper iud?

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

How safe is the copper iud if I don't use a condom? Had the copper iud for a year now ?

How safe is the copper iud if I don't use a condom? Had the copper iud for a year now ?

Confusing question: Any contraceptive method has its own drawbacks but a copper IUD is safe and effective in those who tolerate it. Your question implies you use a condom at the same time. The condom offers you some protection from STD's that the IUD can never do, but is not necessary to prevent pregnancy.The IUD is adequate for that purpose. ...Read more

Do I need to also use a condom with a mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

To prevent STDs: Not to improve the pregnancy prevention but always a good idea for sexual transmitted disease prevention. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is one of the most effective forms of birth control even besting the results of a tubal ligation. ...Read more

Is there any other birth control other than condoms and the pill / iud?

Is there any other birth control other than condoms and the pill / iud?

Yes: Abstinence is still the best with 100% results. Bcp are the most convenient. Iuds also are effective. There is also the implantable Norplant and the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot neither f which is as desirable as birth contra pills or the iud. There is also diaphragm and spermicidal gels. Your obgyn doctor/arnp will have the best information for you. ...Read more

What secondary form of contraception besides condoms can I use if I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

What secondary form of contraception besides condoms can I use if I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

Mirena (levonorgestrel): I think your bases are well covered. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is better than the pill in terms of a contraception. Therefore adding something like the pill is unnecessary. The condom, although a form of contraception which will add to the efficiency of the mirena, (levonorgestrel) will also serve to help protect against stds. In all, the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is probably the most reliable method of reversible contraception. ...Read more

I gave birth on the 4th of april I had my IUD put in yesterday. Can I have sex the next day  without a condom?

Sure, if you feel ok: So long as you feel up to it! an iud is effective immediately for birth control, so the real determining factor is when you feel physically recovered from childbirth (and the iud insertion) and comfortable resuming sexual activity. ...Read more
