I also read that IUDs can contribute to bact vag by "introducing bacteria into the vagina" but it's been in my cervix for three year so I'm not sure how it's introducing anything. I seem to remember that an iUD can carry bacteria into the uterus causing PID.
Has anyone else had a similar problem when using condoms? And does this sound like time for the IUD to come out? It's a copper-T and I am not thrilled about only using condoms, or being on hormonal b.c. For the past two years I was also on a low-dose birth control pill to try and control mood swings, but I decided about six months ago that emotional coping skills would be more effective, and they are :)
Any thoughts about birth control? I feel like there's some magic bullet I'm missing.
