  • my sister had it and it caused her to get infections so bad they had to take it out. IUD's for some people who are prone to infections are not a good choice of BC.

  • You can contact them and they will send you a really nice information kit (mine came with spa stuff) including a detailed question and answer sheet. Turns out I'm not a good candidate for it. I would definitely call or visit the website to get the information.
