About IUD and IUS

An Intra-Uterine Contraceptive Device or IUD is a small plastic and copper device that is inserted past the cervix. It prevents a hostile environment for sperm in order to prevent pregnancy. An Intrauterine system or IUS is a small T-shaped device that is also inserted past the cervix. The mechanism to prevent pregnancy is slightly different compared to an IUD - slowly releasing the hormone progestorone. An IUD will last 5 years, and an IUS will last up to 10.

Having a coil fitted may be uncomfortable. The discomfort has been described as is quite similar to menstrual related pains. At Gynae UK, we use anaesthetic gels to numb the area, resulting in a relatively pain free experience. A fitting will probably not cause much pain if you have birthed a child already, as the cervix will be somewhat more pliable.
The coil may be pushed out, or pushed out of position by the uterus. This can possibly happen after insertion, however is rare. Your Gynaecologist will show you how to check the coil threads every month and you can always arrange a follow up appointment for 6 weeks after the initial fitting to ensure that your IUD is working as expected.
You might have irregular bleeding patterns during the first few months after using an IUD. Some women have heavier, longer or painful periods. 
 Yes, you may use tampons, moon-cup or pads while using an IUD.  
Although it is not possible to get pregnant while having the IUD fitted, there is a small risk of an ectopic pregnancy. The risk of ectopic pregnancy is less for women who use an IUD than in women who do not use any contraception at all. 
 Yes, the IUD is suitable for women who are breastfeeding, though you have to wait for at least four to six weeks after giving birth before getting it fitted.  
No, there are no long term effects of IUD use and fertility 
 Your partner should not be able to feel your IUD during intercourse. However, if they can feel the threads, it is advised to talk to your Gynaecologist and check if your IUD is in properly in place. They might be able to cut the threads a little.
