for those of you with the paraguard (copper IUD)...

How long did you continue using your previous method of birth control before relying solely on the IUD? My doctor told me continue with condoms for the next month. Has anyone broken the "rules" and been okay?

  • I got mine put in and didn't have sex for 48 hours, then went on as if I was protected...cause I was! I love my paraguard copper IUD, I've had no issues with it...I've had it for almost 5 years. I don't remember my doctor ever advising us to use protection, I probably would've just because I didn't want any surprised, lol! I hope it works for you, take care!
