You can have sex as soon as you like after the intrauterine device ( IUD ) is inserted.
The ParaGard IUD is effective immediately.
The Mirena IUD is effective immediately if inserted within seven days after the start of your period. If you have Mirena inserted at any other time during your menstrual cycle, use another method of birth control like a condom, female condom, or spermicide if you have vaginal intercourse during the first week after insertion. Protection will begin after seven days.
