hi! intra uterine contraceptive devices or IUCDs as they are called are quite safe to be used after second pregnancy. however as you have undergone a c-section twice i would advice you use it after a period of three months as the scar will have to heal.it starts working within hours of insertions.you have to make sure of it's position however by checking the thread that hangs outside the cervix into the vagina.it is contraindicated in pelvic inflammatory diseases,endometriosis,adenomyosis.
