Hello all, this is my first time posting here. Sorry if this is repetitive but I haven't found anything for my specific case.

I'm 19, been using the diva cup size 1 since I was 14. No kids, and not a virgin. I have been using an arm implant for birth control but it's about to expire, and I was thinking of switching over to an IUD, but I'm really scared of pulling it out, and I am really happy with the diva cup and I don't want to switch to a different one. Is the diva cup okay with an IUD? Should I just continue with the side effects of my arm implant? Should I switch to a different cup, or a different product all together?

everything that i've heard says that using a cup and an iud is fine. the suction that is created by the cup isn't enough to dislodge the iud, and i don't think using a different cup would make a difference. if you're worried you can talk to you health care provider about it as well, or call a nurses line for your area. if you don't have a regular pcp a clinic could probably help you as well. idk where you live or your insurance situation. if all else fails you can ask the doctor right before you have it inserted and i think you need to have an appointment before that to discus it anyway.
