Last friday I had the Paraguard IUD put in. My doctor told me that technically it's immediately effective, but since things can move around, it's best if we use an another form of protection until my 1 month checkup in August. And that was our plan. Until monday night. It was the 1st time that we felt completely free during sex, other than when I've been pregnant of course, so we didn't use other protection and no withdrawal either. Everything I've read on the computer says it's immediately effective and no wait time to start having completely unprotected my questions is, for those who have/have had IUD's, how long did you wait before not using anything else? I had it inserted on the 5th day of my period and we had sex 3 days I should be good, right? I can't believe I'm STILL nervous about pregnancy and this was the whole reason I decided on the IUD, for peace of mind!!!!

We didn't even wait til that night before we had sex. No worries! I've never heard of a doctor recommending that before. And IUD doesn't really "settle". It's just there and doesn't move. The only thing you'd need to worry about is if it started poking out your cervix. Paragard or Mirena, they're effective immediately!
