Customer Question

A 36 year old woman has endometriosis, severe cramps and pain. She is poor and goes to an urban clinic. They have scheduled her for insertion of a paragard IUD at 3 pm EDT. I have read enough to worry they are choosing the wrong kind of IUD. PLEASE ANSWER RIGHT AWAY, she is taking a shower and will be leaving very soon. HELP!

why are you worried that the paragard IUD is wrong for her?

if she has endometriosis, an IUD containing progestin, such as Mirena, may be effective in reducing endometriosis-associated pain

is that the IUD you were thinking was right for her?
