Prevention

Patient: Should I take the 72 hr pill if I already have an IUD

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your question. Your IUD should provide you with protection against unwanted pregnancy unless it was improp erly placed or needs to be changed. IUDs are among the most affective forms of contraception there is, with an efficacy of about 99%. IUDs, depending on the type, need to be changed anywhere between 3 and 10 years after insertion. If you have any questions about the specific type of IUD you have feel free to send them to Askthedoctor.comThank you for choosing Askthedoctor.com
