I got mine in about three years ago, and no antibiotics.  That’s really strange… I have a Mirena, btw

I’ve had mine almost a year and I wasn’t put on any meds at all with it.

I got mine last December, no antibiotics. Just lots of ibuprofen…

I got mine last…  September?  No anitbiotics for me.  Maybe they found that your friend already had an infection when they placed the IUD?

I don’t see why you would get put on preventative antibiotics. Some women get an infection after but I am thinking it is more likely something that was going on there before. When I got mine inserted I had to provide a negative pregnancy and gonn/chlamydia test before they would put it in.

I know my sister got Mirena and I don’t ever remember her mentioning a course of antibiotics. Something else may be going on, but it’s also possible that the doc is being extra cautious. Who knows…

I’m pretty sure you’ll be fine. Antibiotics tends to mess with birth control anyway, so that seems like risky business to me.

I didn’t get any when I had mine put in, but then, my body rejected it 8 months later.
