IUD and menstrual cups?

I am looking into getting an IUD, (non-hormonal), but I use a menstrual cup- sometimes there is some "suction" getting it out... is this a problem? Anyone use both for a while?

I don't know "for sure" so ask your provider just to be sure.... but i cannot imagine that would be a problem. It "implants" in your uteran lining and i highly doubt some minor suction would dislodge it.

I do. No problems. I did this for three years after dd2, it's been about 18 months this time, since dd3. I used the non-hormonal one - can't recall the name. Totally love it.

Also interested in this. I have an IUD and want to try a cup. I've tried mama cloth but I am just not a pad person, be it cloth or plastic/paper. I'd really like to stop using tampons.

Posting from my iPhone, hope it's legible

As long as you break the suction before pulling the cup out it'll be fine
