IUD and antibiotics...

Is it like birth control pills and antibiotics where the efficiency of the pill is greatly reduced if not totally gone? I've never thought of asking my OBGYN.

TIA for your responses!

  • I have only had mine for 16 months and so far no problems. My cycle is regular and VERY light, no cramps or anything. I did know one women who had hers removed because her bleeding got out of control.
