Ease Me In (The more guarded approach):
From what I've heard, it seems like an IUD might be a great option for me. It's easy, effective and convenient and almost all women can use it safely. I know you have told me in the past that I'm not a good candidate for an IUD because I've never been pregnant before and because I'm young. I have several friends in the same situation and they have IUDs. Is there another reason that an IUD is not right for me?

Just Give It to Me (The no-nonsense tactic):
I am very interested in getting an IUD. I understand that you do not think this is a good method for me because I am too young and have not been pregnant before. From what I've heard, it really sounds like the best choice for me and I have several friends in my same situation who have one. So I wanted to bring it up again. Would you be willing to provide me with an IUD or refer me to another provider or health center?
