Question about the IUD

Elizaberth - posted on 07/19/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I would like to ask you something and I don't really know what to do I've got my IUD for 12 years now should I change the IUD or can I keep the one I've got? Also what I would like to ask past few months I've been losing weight dose the IUD changes it's position or does it stay where it should be?

I don't know of any IUD's that are good for 12 years. I know the mirena is good for 5 years and I think a copper iud is good for 10 years. You should be going for yearly check ups to make sure your IUD is still in place. You should definitely speak to your doctor about getting it changed and making sure everything is ok
