Can you use IUD, if you haven't given birth?

Aug 25, 2011
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and WHO, the IUD can be used for women, who haven't given birth. In the past, many specialists discouraged the use of IUD in women, who have never been pregnant before, because it was falsely linked to health problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility and others. Recent researchers indicate that IUD does not lead to such complications.
However, many doctors do not recommend using IUD for women, who haven't given birth, because it is more likely to lead to painful sensations during insertion , more cramping and expulsion of IUD.
