Menstrual Products Don’t Increase IUD Expulsion

This just landed in my inbox and I thought some of you would find this interesting;

To quote the above article; 

"Use of tampons or menstrual cups does not increase the risk of early expulsion of an intrauterine device, according to findings of a retrospective cohort study of nearly 1,000 women."

"In the study, the overall rate of IUD expulsion within 2 months of insertion was low (3.5%), and was statistically no higher for women who used tampons or cups than it was for their counterparts who used pads."
