IUD and ME

You and your girls are sitting around having a conversation about birth control, condoms, dick, men, relationships, your body, what it rejects, what it accepts, what you not gon’ do and what you’re allergic to. But at least one of you are considering getting an IUD.

It’s you isn’t’ it.


Once you mention the dreaded Intruterine Device, your friends will tell you the horror stories of what they heard, and what the side effects are, even if they never in life had an IUD.

Girl, don’t get no damn IUD you will get a PID and then won’t be able to have a K.I.D.

Girl, you crazy, my friends’ sister had an IUD and went into toxic shock and died.

Girl, what? You don’t need to have no strange device in you just sitting there not knowing what the fuck.

Girl, an IUD? You buggin, you can get an infection!

Girl, my sister’s boyfriends wife got an IUD and they had to take it out and when they did? Her guts was wrapped around it!

So now you’re sitting there, even after all of your research, even after consulting with a physician, even after making your mind up, you are now confused as to what to do.   I say, get that damn IUD! And here’s why, it’s really, really simple.


First things first, more often than not, a woman that gets an IUD feels as if this is her freedom papers to stop giving a fuck about all things pussy.  Her mentality is that, she is in a monogamous relationship and her only concern is not getting pregnant and not having a period, which the IUD provides protection from.  Because of this, the female won’t go to the doctor.  She feels as if she is protected by the IUD and she is not.

Yes you are right, you have a strange device in you which means you need to go to the doctor more often than not!  No you’re not pregnant, and sure you don’t get a period, but don’t you want to check up on that strange device that’s in you?



So the issue is this, a woman tends to neglect her body once she gets an IUD inserted and this is where problems arise!  Because you are not checking up on your self semi-annually or annually you leave room for so many things to go wrong, then you blame the IUD!

Granted the IUD is valid for 3-5 years, but that that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t visit your physician until it’s time to take the IUD out!  This doesn’t mean ignore stomach pains and self diagnose by using WebMD! This doesn’t mean ignoring the spotting that may occur or the strange smells coming from your vagina and douching it out instead of going to the doctor.  These are all signs that something inside of you is wrong, don’t ignore it and then blame it on the IUD!

Once an intrauterine device is inserted, your body will change.  Things will start happening that normally doesn’t.  Find out the side effects of IUD’s, do your homework and keep yourself informed!  It is on you to stay on top of those changes, document everything and follow up with your doctor in the event that anything seems off!

Sometimes  it is the device.  Sometimes it isn’t.  It’s on you to get into yourself and know your body so that you can determine your next step!

Like a woman that leaves a tampon in her for too long, that shit is just foul and ain’t nothing but self-neglect.  The tampon isn’t the issue, you are!

Worse case scenario, if the IUD isn’t for you, then it just isn’t.  But each person is designed different.  Take a chance and regardless of having an IUD or not, you should visit your Gynecologist as instructed to stay on top of your womanisms.
