Can My Boyfriend Come in Me If I Have an IUD 2?

An IUD is a form of long-term birth control that can protect against pregnancy for up to 10 years, helping reduce cramping and bleeding as well. These T-shaped devices also serve to decrease period cramps.

Your GP or nurse who fits an IUD will demonstrate how to feel for its strings (think fishing wire) so that you can confirm if the IUD remains in its place before engaging in sexual activity. Although rare, sexual contact rarely causes IUDs to dislodge themselves or come out (called expulsion).

How long will it take to get pregnant?

IUDs are highly effective birth control options. They work by blocking sperm from fertilizing eggs in your uterus and are also highly resistant to sperm that enters through fallopian tubes that carry eggs to the uterus. Unfortunately, however, they don’t prevent ectopic pregnancies – those which develop outside the normal reproductive tract in your fallopian tubes, abdomen or cervix and can be life-threatening to both you and the unborn child. Since an ectopic can’t grow normally here, doctors must end it through surgery or other forms of medical care immediately in order to preserve both you and the unborn.

Though pregnancy with an IUD is rare, it’s possible. Most cases arise because the device was improperly installed or it shifted out of its place, so it’s wise to consult your physician or nurse after IUD insertion about how best to care for yourself afterwards. They should teach you how to check for threads of your device periodically throughout its first month and after every period or at regular intervals; if your IUD has moved then make an appointment immediately with a GP so they can inspect it and confirm.

Notably, IUDs do not provide sufficient protection from sexually transmitted infections such as STDs and other sexually transmitted illnesses (STIs). If additional protection is desired, consider pairing your IUD with either a condom or another barrier method such as taking pills to supplement it.

Some women may experience heavier or longer periods after having an IUD implanted. Others might notice spotting or bleeding between periods or an occasional pelvic infection; your physician may prescribe antibiotics to address such symptoms.

Before having an IUD inserted, it is very important not to have vaginal sex and to wait 24 hours post-insertion before engaging in vaginal sex. You should also avoid using tampons, menstrual cups and any other items which enter your vagina.

Will it hurt?

An IUD may cause pain or discomfort when your healthcare provider inserts it, however with proper precautions in place this should be minimalized. You can take over-the-counter NSAIDs or heating pads to help alleviate discomfort after IUD insertion, while some women may experience mild to intense cramping afterward which will typically subside within hours or days.

Usually, getting an IUD won’t cause any pain during intercourse. If you are experiencing discomfort during sexual encounters, however, it may be due to another medical condition, such as dyspareunia (when the uterine lining becomes sensitive or painful when touched). Another possible source is inadequate lubrication from medications like antidepressants, high blood pressure medication or sedatives – which could potentially reduce friction during sexual engagements.

When using a hormonal IUD, it may take seven-14 days for its hormones to start protecting you against pregnancy. During this period, other forms of birth control should be used such as condoms as extra protection. But with copper IUDs being immediate in their effectivity, you can begin dating and engaging in sexual relations as soon as your period has finished.

Even though your cervix should keep an IUD secure, it may fall out occasionally; this occurs most commonly if it was recently placed, or placed incorrectly within your uterus. If you suspect your IUD may have moved, please reach out to a gynecologist immediately so they can examine it further for you.

Once an IUD is in its appropriate location in your uterus, its strings should remain unfelt during sex; you should not experience pain from its presence either. If this occurs instead, it could indicate either something is amiss with your health or that something was mishandled when inserting the device initially.

If you have an IUD, your gynecologist should instruct you in how to check its strings each month to ensure it remains in place and give you peace of mind in knowing you are protected from pregnancy. By doing this, sexual confidence will increase dramatically and become much less intimidating!

Can my partner feel the IUD strings?

Though it’s possible to detect the strings of an IUD during sex, they are very thin and made of plastic; therefore, any discomfort should not cause much pain (similar to sensing a tampon during sex). If they become bothersome however, contact your healthcare provider or nurse and request they trim shorter.

Your partner shouldn’t feel the strings with their penis during sex due to vaginal mucus acting as a protective layer between IUD strings and penis. However, if the encounter becomes rough or deep during sexual encounter, strings might become noticeable; if this concerns you, discuss this beforehand with your partner to see if there are any solutions they suggest that might help.

Your gyno can teach you how to check the strings regularly, particularly before and during your period. They will show you how to use your fingertips to reach inside your cervix and feel for any strings that might be present. Checking regularly is especially crucial if you use hormonal IUDs; sometimes the hormones take time to kick in and protect against pregnancy.

As with any form of birth control, IUDs require additional forms of contraception in order to be effective; its hormones can take up to seven days to start protecting you against pregnancy with a hormonal IUD and you don’t want to risk pregnancy during that timeframe. A copper IUD may provide immediate protection; but alternative forms should still be utilized if there are concerns that your IUD may not be in its correct place during sex activities; should it fall out during an encounter however, emergency contraception should be used until you can visit a medical professional immediately.

Can my partner ejaculate inside of me?

Your question serves as a timely reminder that it takes open dialogue and trust between partners in order to decide if you are comfortable with them coming inside of you. No matter what form of sex is involved, it’s always wise to discuss all available options before making decisions together on sexual activity; birth control options, STD/STI prevention methods and post-sex cleanup must all be agreed upon before moving forward sexually.

Most men don’t detect when sperm enters their female partner during unprotected sex. When orgasming during sex may produce pre-cum, an excretory fluid which may contain sperm but unlikely to lead to pregnancy since it comes from the ejaculatory sac rather than penis.

If both you and your partner are using some form of birth control, there is an estimated 99% chance that orgasming during sex will not result in pregnancy. But regardless of what protection is used or not used, safer sex practices and barrier methods for oral, vaginal, and anal sex may still help ensure no pregnancies result from it.

An IUD makes practicing safer sex easier as it eliminates the hassle of keeping track of orgasm caps, sprays or condoms. Furthermore, hormonal IUDs such as Mirena, Liletta or Skyla can act as emergency contraceptive solutions without needing to visit a clinic or take pills every month – saving both time and effort when trying to stay protected against unintended pregnancy.

Inserting a hormonal IUD is quick and painless. Your healthcare provider will recline you on an exam table, insert a small speculum (like tiny tweezers) into your cervix, and use an applicator that looks like a straw to place the IUD in your uterus. While cramping sensations might occur briefly during this procedure, most women report feeling fine afterwards and are usually back home by that same evening. If discomfort does persist prior to or during, take an NSAID such as ibuprofen or naproxen. After installation most women experience little or no discomfort and return home in that same day!
