Can I get an abortion if I have an IUD (intrauterine device) in place?
It is possible to have an abortion if you have an IUD in place, but the IUD will typically need to be removed before the abortion procedure. Your healthcare provider will assess your situation and discuss your options for IUD removal and abortion timing.
In some cases, the IUD may have contributed to the pregnancy complication, such as an ectopic pregnancy. If this is the case, your healthcare provider will create a plan to address the issue and ensure your safety.
After the abortion, you can discuss with your healthcare provider whether to have a new IUD inserted or explore other birth control options.
