New Study Finds Menstrual Cups Do Not Increase Risk of IUD Expulsion

Posted on 25 October 2011 by Jason

A recent study found that women who used internal menstrual devices, such as menstrual cups, are not at a statistically higher risk of IUD (intra-uterine device) expulsion than those who use pads. Conducted by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, the study looked at nearly 1,000 women who had IUDs inserted during 2009. In an interview at the annual meeting of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada, lead researcher Dr. Ellen Wiebe shared the inspiration for her work. “Every week or so, I would get asked the question, ‘Is it okay to use a cup with the IUD?’ And I looked in the literature, and there were no answers.”
Menstrual cups are becoming increasingly popular among young, health-conscious women in the United States. Unlike tampons, reusable menstrual cups collect the menstrual flow, rather than absorbing it, and are reusable for many cycles. With concerns about toxic shock and environmental waste, menstrual cups are a convenient lifestyle choice for many women – now including those with IUDs as well.

    A lot of of whatever you mention happens to be astonishingly precise and that makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nevertheless there is just one issue I am not necessarily too comfy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the issue, permit me observe what all the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.
