How Is an IUD Removed?
Having an IUD removed or replaced is usually simple. Your health care provider will do it for you. Women should never try to remove IUDs themselves or ask nonprofessionals to do it for them. Serious damage could result.
In rare cases, IUDs cannot be easily pulled free. In these cases, the cervix may have to be dilated and a surgical tool may be used to free the IUD. In very rare cases, surgery becomes necessary
it's cheaper and more effective than the pill
From an effectiveness standpoint, the IUD provides more-effective long-term contraception and lessens menstrual bleeding. “Once it’s placed, you’re 99 percent protected against pregnancy, without having to do anything else, for 5 to 10 years,” says Health’s gynecological expert Katharine O’Connell, MD.
As for the Pill, more women are likely to occasionally forget to take it, rendering that method less effective. “But if a woman is a perfect Pill-taker, she’s got 97 percent protection against pregnancy. And given all the noncontraceptive benefits of the Pill—lighter periods, no cramps, less acne, cancer defense—it may be an overall better method,” she says.
So why is the Pill used over 500% more?
