Can Teen Clinic insert an IUD?

Yes, let’s talk a little bit about the IUD!

IUDs (Intrauterine Devices) are long term, reversible methods of birth control used to effectively prevent pregnancy. An IUD is a T-shaped device that rests in the uterus

There are two types of IUDs: Hormonal and Non-Hormonal.  Hormonal IUDs are effective for 3-5 years depending on the type, and Non-Hormonal IUDs are effective for up to 10 years.

However, it’s important to note that IUDs do not prevent against any STIs! IUDs can be a great form a birth control, but you will want to use a barrier method like condoms 100% of the time to help with the prevention of STIs.

Teen Clinic offers IUDs. Any person can get an IUD if their health history permits. A person will make an appointment at Teen Clinic, and come in and talk to one of our medical professionals, and can potentially leave that day with an IUD!

Services at Teen Clinic for anyone under 17 are completely free. For someone that is 18 or 19, services may be free or a low cost, but nothing will be over $50. This includes IUDs as well!
