Hi Anon,


Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

If you have had your tubes cut and burned, (tubal ligation) they are 99.5% effective as birth control.   

 IUDs are one of the most effective forms of birth control available. Less than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant each year. IUDs release hormones which is likely the reason you are experiencing irregular menstrual cycle and other menstrual type symptoms.

I hope this help.

Be well,
