IUDs are safe. My wife has successfully used one for more than three years. They are nice because they do not cause the side effects of many other Birth Control options. Unfortunately, at times, it can create some discomfort for the man because the string attached to the IUD can make contact with the penis during intercourse. In my experience, it is not often enough to suggest any other form of birth control. (of course they do not help prevent sexually transmitted diseases.) I don't recall the specifics, but the website for planned parenthood contains information about the pros and cons of all types of birth control, including IUDs. Good luck! I have an IUD Mirena, which was great until 2 days ago I became the less than 1% who can become pregnant and I didn't know what could happen until i read the mirena website and now I'm facing alot of scary stuff like i might lose the pregnancy you should know all the info before you decide.
