HELP FAST - IUD and Multiple Partner Sexual Relationship
So having an IUD put in and going off the pill - two sexual partners - what is the problem or risk?  Other than STD from one or more partner - Is the risk of something greater than being on the pill

Well, the risk i don't think is greater than if you were using the pill...but i don't know that for sure.  If you're going to have multiple partners, hopefull you're using a condomn at least.

Having more than one sexual partner is risky behavior alone! You should be using a condom.

The risk of PID intensifies if you have an IUD and multiple sexual partners.  Be careful and use condoms.

If you get an STD while you have an IUD there is a very high chance it will cause scarring and lead to infertility.

Usually doctor's won't let you get an IUD if there's a chance your going to have more than one partner (where I live anyway). My doctor prefers only giving them to girls who are married and who have already had children. I don't think it's very wise to have multiple partner because you are putting yourself at risk for severe infections and complications.

Your doctor is absolutely WRONG regarding the IUD and latest data- read ACOG bulletin number 539.

only the condom can protect you against most std's. i say most since you can still get herpes from an open sore in the genital area. use condoms every time.

It's more about STDs than the IUD. Pills don't protect you against STDs either. That being said taking BC is not carte blanche for you to just go out and nail everything that moves. They're just in their own way telling you to have safe sex. But, in answer to your question, no, you don't need to change your IUD every time you change partners.
