Can An Intrauterine Device (IUD) Cause Any Kidney Issues?

An interesting question we got from one of our clients was, “Can an intrauterine device (IUD) cause any type of kidney damage?”


The short answer to this question is No. An intrauterine device (IUD) is a small, often T-shaped birth control device that is inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. IUDs give you great, long-term protection against pregnancy — they’re more than 99% effective.


They work as well as sterilization and the birth control implant. IUDs are one of the most effective methods you can get because there’s almost no way you can mess it up.


An intrauterine device (IUD) is one way to execute birth control and generally, they’re considered to be very safe.


A handful of cases showed that IUD caused some kidney problems according to the National Library of Medicine but those cases are exceptional as the IUDs weren’t appropriately managed and were kept in use for extended periods of time.


In conclusion, you shouldn’t worry about developing any kind of kidney problems by using an IUD. It is useful to note that IUDs do not accelerate the rate of kidney disease if you have any.
