Need help! I got an IUD the other day while I was on my period, BUT my doctor said no unprotected sex for a week. I'll be 5 days since I got the IUD...should I risk it?

Wait 7 days just to be safe, but I have heard the IUD starts to take effect straight away if it's put in on the first 7 days of our period, anyone else heard this before?

Let us evaluate this for a minute..... Waiting two days to have sex or risking a life time commitment and change with a baby..... Hmmmm I would control my urges for two days... But that is just me. Listen to Angela and do what your doctor said!

Chelsea, I can understand what you are saying. I have been there and done that. Trust me.... when there is a will there is a way and the two body parts that can get you pregnant never even have to touch and you still BOTH get the same end result.... catch my drift?

O my goodness for crying out loud follow your doctor's instructions. You could wait 2 weeks. You're certainly not going to die from lack of sexual intercourse.

Well, depends on just how big of a gamble you want to take .. And whether or not you are prepared for the consequences.  If your doctor said a week .. I would think 7 days would be worth the wait .. And not a moment before

Being patient is better than being pregnant.

If the boyfriend is in a hurry you might suggest that he gets an IPD. Painful, of course, but it'll keep him off the nest for a while.
