Can I use tampons or a menstrual cup once I have an IUD?

Yes. We advise that you avoid using these for the first two weeks after fitting an IUD but they are safe to use. It is important to avoid catching the threads of the IUD when you remove a menstrual cup or tampon, so just ensure you remove your cup or tampon carefully, and check the threads of your IUD after your period finishes.
