  • you should wait until after your first period to trust the IUD but you can.

  • When I had my Mirena placed the dr told me to wait 2 days before having sex, and to use condoms for the first week.

  • NO!!! The IUD is good from the second it goes it. I had it, but had too many bleeding issues that I went back to the pill

  • You're supposed to be protected immediately after insertion but i'd use extra protection just as a precaution against pregnancy as well as infection for the first week or two.

  • I believe it's 2 days for unprotected sex. You can call your obgyn and ask to speak to them because you have a question and they should put you through
