An IUD is a birth control device that is inserted into the uterus and is generally effective for up to 5 to 10 years. It is important to note that when an IUD expires, it will no longer be effective at preventing pregnancy. This means that it is important to keep track of when an IUD was inserted and when it will expire so that a new one can be inserted in time. If an IUD expires, the user must consult with a healthcare provider to determine if it is safe to keep the IUD in or to have it removed and replaced. Without proper care, an expired IUD may cause serious medical complications, so it is important to take care of this issue promptly.
Taking too much of a contraceptive pill can have serious short and long-term health implications. Taking more than the prescribed dosage can lead to nausea, vomiting, and a decrease in the effectiveness of the pill. In addition, long-term use of an increased dosage can cause an increased risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. Women should follow the instructions on the packet and speak to their healthcare provider if they have any concerns. Taking too much of a contraceptive pill can be dangerous and should be avoided.
