Can I use OrganiCup with an IUD?
This is a question we get a lot! Which is why, we have consulted with several gynecologists, and the short answer is: yes!
Many OrganiCup users already use an OrganiCup while having an IUD fitted. However, as with any other gynecological concern, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before starting to use a menstrual cup with an IUD.
There has been cases where an IUD has become dislocated and it's been linked to the use of a menstrual cup. However, many other factors could play in such as usage issues or anatomical circumstances. Moreover, 5% of IUD will get naturally rejected by the body within the first 3 months after the device has been inserted. Should you decide to use OrganiCup in conjunction with your IUD, we recommend that you;
- Wait at least 2-3 full cycles after the IUD has been inserted before you start using the OrganiCup. It should give your IUD enough time to settle.
- Ensure that you break the suction seal before removing the OrganiCup.
- Place the OrganiCup near the vaginal opening and as low as possible.
You can also ask your gynaecologist to shorten the IUD string for you
