Just be aware that there are risks with having an IUD inserted. When my doctor put mine in, it perforated my uterus and ended up in my abdomen. I needed surgery to remove it. This is a rare complication (happens about once in every 1000 insertions), but it does happen. I desperately wanted the IUD to work out for me, since it seems like a fantastic method of birth control, but, alas, no such luck.
