Can IUD be inserted while on menstruation?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 10/25/2019

The IUD can be inserted at any time during a woman's menstrual cycle. If it is inserted when a woman has her period, it is good because she would be unlikely to be pregnant. It is also easier to insert. During menstruation, however, it is not so easy to see signs of infection.
