Does anyone else get yeast Infections after getting IUD?

I NEVER had a yeast infection or UTI before I had my son- I had an IUD put in after my 6w checkup. My son is now 5m old & Ive had TWO infections!

Am I getting them because my son changed my body or because of the IUD?! Anyone have any ideas- If I get other one I may ask doctor to remove IUD.

  • Eat yogurt everyday and wear cotton undies. Im not sure an IUD would harbor bacteria like that. You never know, though. YI are a pain,
