Can the IUD lead to fertility problems in the future?

By Dr. Daniel Sosa.
Last Update: 10/25/2019

The intrauterine device (IUD) is a contraceptive method that after removal should not lead to fertility problems. Most studies and clinical practice show this.

There is little chance that the IUD is a risk factor for a low genital infection (infections that develop in the vagina and/or cervix) to ascend into the uterine cavity, the fallopian tubes, and eventually the abdominal cavity. This is why it is so important to carry out periodic check-ups of the IUD and to see a gynecologist if any type of symptom appears that could be related to it.
