I think it's commendable that you gave an open relationship with her, but she might not want to discuss her sex life with her mother.
I know this is true for my daughter. I'm definitely going to offer her the option of going to the OB/GYN and discussing it with her.

I understood her to mean carrying it around in one's body. I believe that there are new types of IUD's that have a much lower risk of perforation and are prescribed to women who have not yet had children.

Do I get a pass on this thread for being befuddled because it's Friday?

When my daughter turned 16, I made her first appointment with an OB/GYN, let me preface this with she was not dating anyone and was not sexually active. When she asked if I was coming to her appt with her I said no, this was her doctor and I wanted her to be able to be open and honest about her body, birth control or any and all questions she might have for the Dr. She chose to go on birth control at that time, more so for shorter periods/cramps, but I was happy to know that she was covered if the boyfriend appeared (he did, she's 19 and has been dating him since she was 17). But more than anything, I wanted her to know this was her body, her decisions were just that- her decisions, and that honoring herself was the most important thing. OP, I would make her an appointment, just my 2 cents.

I meant "carry it around" IN your body, not your purse.

They're not even new, Mirena has been around for yonks and has low risks of perforation.

Because you mentioned her age, one more thing to consider. When will she turn 18? What are the age of consent laws in your state? "If" she does have sex with this young man once she turns 18, there maybe legal consequences of that.

I'm just imagining someone carrying an IUD around in their purse and stopping off at the gyn to get it popped in before sex!

That is an excellent point.
