    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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?

    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.

    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.
