Soft Cup and IUD Kairi Leeloo 33 kids; Acworth, Georgia 6958 posts

I was at the store and saw soft cups and got excited and bought them instead of tampons. However; when I got home, it said don't use with IUD. I have Mirena. Is it simply because they're afraid of the string getting tugged on? I used the last of my money on them before reading like a dum dum. So I put the cup in and made sure my string was in the cup so it won't get tugged. Should I be fine?

I think so. All you have to be ultra aware of is the string.

We recommend that women using an intrauterine device or IUD talk to their doctor before using Softcup as there is a risk of dislodging or removing the IUD by pulling on the IUD string while removing the Softcup. Your doctor may be able to help you determine whether there are steps you may take to safely use the Softcup and your IUD simultaneously, such as trimming the IUD string.

It doesn't say don't use it, just get informed first. No big deal.

I figured I'd just have to be cautious of the string and making sure it's not tangled around or anything. Thanks guys.

This is off subject from your question...But I had a question of my own...I tried the soft cup once and I liked it alot...But I had a problem with taking it out...It got really messy and I didn't use it again...Did you ladies have problems with that? and should I just keep trying to use them?
