IUD Seeing a Comeback, Despite Dangers

After years of being off the market, the intrauterine device, or IUD, seems to be enjoying a rebirth by a new generation of women in Phoenix, Arizona.

One of the main changes made over the past twenty years is an IUD that uses the hormone progesterone, similar to that used in the bi 00004000 rth control pill. Another type of IUD, the copper T, has also made a resurgence. The copper T IUD does not release the hormone, but instead releases copper into the body. Both forms of the IUD irritate the inner lining of the womb causing inflammation, and can also cause: pelvic inflammatory disease, allergic reactions, infections, uterus perforation, spontaneous abortion and lack of or prolonged menstruation.

Women who are having problems with their IUD’s are running into barriers in having the device removed. The cost of the removal can be prohibitive. Women also sometimes run into resistance from doctors who may be reluctant to remove the IUD’s. Life Choices Women’s Clinic in Phoenix, AZ offers a low-cost removal.

Before making a decision whether to use the IUD, make sure that you get all the information about the possible health risks. To make an appointment for a free consultation with our family planning consultant, contact Life Choices Women’s Clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Getting pregnant after iud removal and miscarriage?
    I will be removing my Paraguard IUD next Friday and have read that many women miscarry if they get pregnant soon after removing the IUD. Have any of you heard this or experienced this?

    • ANSWER:
      I had an IUD and became pregnant within weeks of having it removed. My pregnancy ended at 21weeks because my son had a form of spinabifida that would have made it impossible to live out side my womb. wether this was from my iud or the lack of folic acid is debateable but i think both factors contributed to my sons condition. (anencephaly)

      Misscarrige is a risk you will take with getting pregnant at any time. I would suggest taking a multi vitamin and a folic acid supplement before removal and throughout pregnancy.

      good luck

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the percentage of miscarriage after IUD removal while pregnant?
    I got an IUD (Paraguard) about 2 months ago, and this month my breasts have been really tender and I just felt different, so I took a home preg test (my period isn’t even due for a few days!) and I got a faint positive. I know the IUD has to be removed, will it definitely cause a miscarriage or will I be able to carry the baby to term? Obviously this wasn’t a planned pregnancy, but I don’t want to lose it either. Any experience with this anyone???

    • ANSWER:
      I got pregnant twice with an IUD. Both times I had it removed and didn’t miscarry.

  3. QUESTION:
    How soon can you get pregnant after IUD removal?
    I had my IUD removed on Monday the 10th and spotted until friday until me and my husband were “together” with no protection. I was just wondering if its possible to get pregnant that soon? We want another child as soon as possible because I am down the road to a future hysterectomy. Should you wait until you get your periods back and then try? Has anybody got pregnant, after an iud removal, before they even started their periods again? Just curious. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      some will get prego right after removed IUD.. some will take time..its all depends on your body..

  4. QUESTION:
    Getting Pregnant after IUD Removal?
    I have had an IUD for a couple years now. I want to ask first have you or anybody you know got pregnant on the Mirena IUD???

    And was it hard to get pregnant after you or somebody you know took it out?? how long did it take to get pregnant after it was removed??

    I want to take it out soon and try for another baby. My first was so easy to get pregnant. So I am hoping this IUD didn’t mess up my system I want to ask people from experience.

    Thanks guys!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Not to scare you but I have had my IUD out for 7 months now and am still trying, but it also took a while to get pregnant with my first but not with my second. Evey one is different and my doctor told me I should have gotten pregnant the very next month. You never know until you try. Good luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    HOW CAN YOU GET PREGNANT AFTER IUD REMOVAL?
    I have done a lot of reading on getting pregnant after the removal of an IUD. Everything stays pregnancy can occur RIGHT after removal, and there have been a lot of cases where people got pregnant the first month after it was removed. I had mine in for three years and have not had a period in that long. How is it possible to get pregnant right after removal if you haven’t had a cycle??

    • ANSWER:
      it’s not always possible to get pregnant right away….How can you get pregnant you ask? Have sex. Simple. If it happens right away then okay…if not then keep trying. It’s all you can do.
