Tips for your Emergency Contraception IUD appointment call

  • Let the clinic know that you want to make an appointment to get an emergency IUD
  • Discuss when you last had unprotected intercourse to be sure they can insert the IUD within the 7 day window
  • Ask about the cost of the IUD and discuss how you plan to pay
  • Ask if you should take over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen before your appointment to reduce possible discomfort during insertion
