If a woman previously had an intrauterine device [IUD], then they have a higher chance of miscarrying.
A woman’s past use of conceptive measures, such as an IUD, has no impact upon their current pregnancy. The only way an IUD can cause a miscarriage is if a woman conceives while they are still using an IUD.
Women should use sanitary pads rather than tampons when going through a miscarriage
Using pads reduces the risks of developing an infection, as well as giving a more accurate indicator of blood loss. For example, if a woman is having to change their pad on an hourly basis, a trip to the emergency department may be a good idea.
If you have concerns about your baby’s health, you should:
Ask a friend, parent, or someone who has raised a child
Call and schedule an appointment with you pediatrician
Wait it out and see what happens
While the internet and people with child raising experience are always a great source of information and support, no one knows your baby like you and your pediatrician. Questions or concerns about your baby should always be addressed by a doctor who is familiar with your child. Additionally, do not ignore your parental instinct. If you feel something is off, it is worth investigating.
