Any bad points?

  • Temporary side effects can include headaches, acne and breast tenderness

  • Can be pushed out by the womb or become dislodged
  • Can puncture or perforate the womb which may require removal by surgery, although this is rare
  • Doesn't protect against STIs, including HIV/AIDS
  • Small chance of infection after the device has been put in.
