Get it and forget it
If you're a busy person who doesn't want to worry about remembering birth control, the IUD just may be for you. Once it's in, you're good to go for years.
No packages or prescriptions to pick up at the pharmacy, so there's nothing that could get lost or forgotten.
No one can tell when you have an IUD. (Some partners say they can feel the string, but that can be adjusted.) There's no tell-tale packaging, and nothing you need to do just before you have sex.
Safe and sound
Most experts agree, if you’re a healthy woman, you’re probably a good candidate for the IUD. That’s true even if you’re young, haven't ever been pregnant, or haven’t had kids yet.
The pregnancy question
You should return to fertility (fancy way of saying you should go back to being able to get pregnant) very quickly after you have the IUD removed. Which is great if you want to have a baby. But if you're not ready to get pregnant as soon as you have an IUD taken out, be sure to protect yourself with an alternate method.
