Can an IUD be used with the pill?? watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter


    im on the pill (combined, dianette) for acne and period pain.

    but i am quite forgetful and have had 2 pregancy scares...

    i was thinking of getting a more permament method, as a back up as well as a more reliable one.

    i was wondering, can i stay on the pill if i get an IUD inserted?

    i dont want to have to go back to my acne and pain (and will being on the pill prevent the heavy and painful periods that the IUD causes?) ????

    (i know its a uncomfortable procedure, which reminds me, can i ask for a more powerful painkiller than just paracetamol?)
