6 Reasons Not To Get An IUD

6 Reasons Not To Get An IUD

Now that Donald Trump is President, women are rushing to get an IUD. And why not? They are an incredibly safe and effective form of birth control, and for you long-term thinkers, they last for years (read: they will last through Trump's presidential term). If you've read through our content here at IUD.com, then you probably know that we recommend the IUD to all women seeking birth control (as does the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists!) But that doesn't mean it's for everybody. Indeed, there are some downsides to getting an IUD, which you should be aware of before making a decision. 

Here, we present 6 reasons NOT to get an IUD.


1. Your man might complain that he can feel the IUD's strings, which would TOTALLY kill the mood.

(But this should go away fairly quickly!)


6. Without insurance, IUDs post a hefty up-front cost (up to $900!). And with the new administration, who knows if insurance will continue to cover birth control.

But, don't forget that we have 6 reasons FOR getting an IUD, which you can read here. As always, the choice is up to you :) Thanks for reading!
