Can Flex products be used with an IUD?

Consult your doctor if you are wearing an intrauterine device (IUD). While uncommon, there is a risk of dislodging, displacing or removing the IUD by pulling on the IUD string while removing your Flex™ cup. If you are at all concerned about possibly dislodging your IUD while removing Flex, you can make an appointment with your doctor or nurse practitioner and ask them to trim your IUD strings so that they are flush with your cervix. This won't impact the functioning of your IUD or its removal when you are ready to remove it, but it will decrease likelihood of accidental removal. ObGyns and NPs do this frequently for other reasons, e.g. if a partner says that they can "feel" the strings.
