IUD and Chlamydia
An_250660 posted:
I have had my IUD or copper coil in since August but I have recently been diagnosed with chlamydia. Do I have to get my IUD changed after this?
elle0317 responded:
That would be a good question to ask your Dr, the same one that gave you the antibiotics for the infection.

I'm in China so I don't fully trust my Chinese doctor and am worried she might just tell me yes in order to get more money. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
georgiagail replied to clairebaiyu's response:
That makes no sense.

At any rate, once you have been effectively treated, you no longer carry the bacteria connected with this STD. And there would be no reason to get your IUD changed because of this.
