Disadvantages of IUD

Although the intauterine device (IUD) has many advantages for women, it also has several drawbacks. For example, a woman may feel pain when it is placed in the uterus because it is done without anesthesia. In addition, this type of contraceptive must be administered by a medical professional.

On the other hand, the IUD does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and can cause ectopic pregnancies by having the device implanted inside the uterus.
