I am getting a copper IUD inserted by planned parenthood in two days. I just realized that I should be starting my period by this day. I am currently not on any sort of birth control. Is it okay for IUDs to be inserted while a woman is on her period? Will they have a greater chance of slipping out if this happens?

IUDs can be inserted at any point in your cycle, and as far as I'm aware, the timing of insertion isn't at all related to the chance of it being expelled. You can always phone the clinic where you'll be having the procedure though, and ask if they recommend you reschedule.

Thanks for the advice. I actually called the PP where I'm having it done and they said it was perfectly fine and can actually make it easier.
