divacup + paragard IUD

i have a divacup that i absolutely adore, it has changed my life. i'm in the process of changing my birth control because hormones are making my migraines with aura worse, and so i'm thinking i'd really like to get an IUD, the copper paragard IUD, to be specific. however, i checked the divacup.com's FAQ's and they said "The DivaCup is not suggested for use with an Intrauterine Device (IUD). It is possible for the IUD to become dislodged, displaced or removed when the menstrual cup is removed by inadvertently pulling on the IUD string. As with all gynecological concerns, please consult with your physician."

okay, that makes sense, but i've read through the "iud" tags in the community and it looks like there are plenty of women here who have an IUD and use a cup and have yet to dislodge their IUD while using their cup. i guess i'm just looking for reassurance that i can get this paragard and continue to use my divacup. has anyone here actually dislodged their IUD when using a cup? any advice or experiences you'd like to share would be fabulous. thanks! :)
