  • New IUD for new partner?

    Hi there,
    I just had an IUD and at this moment I am not having sex with anyone but maybe soon I may sexually involved with someone. I have one concern regarding IUD as someone told me I would need a new IUD for every new partner.
    Do I need to remove my current IUD in order to have sex with new partner?
    Kindly answer.

    Dear Jenny,

    No, you do not need to remove your IUD for every new partner.

    The main concern would be to ensure you and your soon-to-be partner are free of STDs or sexually transmitted infections. The last thing you want is to have an infection when you have a foreign body like an IUD inside your womb/uterus.

    This can be done through a blood test and a vaginal swab test for yourself. For your male partner, a blood and urine test.

    You can read about vaginal infections here:
    As well as screening for vaginal STDs and other STDs here:

      Thanks for clarifying my doubt Dr Grace and noted on the STDs.
