When should I have an IUD removed?

An IUD can be removed any time in your menstrual cycle but it is important that you have not had sex in the 7 days before removal or you may be at risk of pregnancy (sperm can survive at least 5 and possibly up to 7 days in the female body so after the device is removed they may still be able to cause a pregnancy). If you are planning to move to another form of contraception then it is OK to start this before your IUD is removed so that contraception is in place. If you start a new contraceptive on the day your IUD is removed then you will need to avoid sex or use condoms carefully for the first 7 days (or as advised by the clinician who removes your IUD)
