In brief: Yes--preventing preg
The primary purpose of an iud is to prevent pregnancy and if it is something you desire and having no medical illness (i.
E uterine anomaly, active infections etc..) prevent you from getting it, you can have it. There are several types available. Consult doc to see what is best for you. Good luck.

In brief: Yes
This was once considered a poor choice but has moved to the top of the list for those who deal with sexually active young women.
IUD's are expensive and their placement is uncomfortable,more in those without a prior pregnancy.However, to get 3 years or more of passive BC in one procedure has great value for many.
