I think one of the biggest fears for IUD users who want to start using a cup...and for cup users who are thinking about an IUD... is whether or not cup use encourages IUD expulsion.
So here's a poll for cup users who have or have had an IUD.
Hopefully it will ease some fears and provide a clearer picture of cup use, IUDs, and expulsion.
What kind of cup do you use?
What kind of IUD do you use?
Have you had more than one IUD?
If yes to the last question, why did you replace the first one?
Have you ever been pregnant?
Have you given birth vaginally?
How long after your IUD was inserted did you start to use a cup?
Have you expelled an IUD since using a cup?
Which type of IUD did you expell?
If you expelled an IUD, how old was your IUD?
If you expelled an IUD, how long were you using cup with your IUD?
How do you usually remove your cup?
If you expelled your IUD with your cup, how were you removing it?
If you had to choose between your cup and your IUD, which would you keep?
