Young women and IUDs

Dear G2G,

I'm 20 and I want to get an IUD. I will have safe sex unless I'm monogamous. Thoughts?


Dear Gina,

IUDs are great but they're not right for everyone. You can read my past post about them here. The FDA and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists changed their recommendations a few years ago so women who havent had children are candidates for the IUD.

The hitch for young women can sometimes be getting a provider who will acutally insert an IUD for you. Unlike writing a prescription for a drug, not all doctors or nurse practitioners are trained to insert IUDs, so your doctor may not be able to do it. Call and find out. I hear from women regularly that if they bring up the IUD during their regular annual appointment, they get the brush off. So you should call your doc's office and find out if they even do IUDs and, if they do, you'll need to schedule an "IUD consultation" where they will measure your uterus to make sure it can hold an IUD and run some STI tests to make sure you get treatment for anything that's hanging out in your girl parts.

If your doctor doesn't do IUDs, call your local Planned Parenthood clinic.

Good luck!
