I tried to find something on the internet to link to you but I couldn't find anything so I'm taking a guess here.

I think that as long as AF has stopped and your not ovulating you should be ok. I say that because when either of those are going on your cervix is open. If your cervix is shut nothing is going to get up in there, so you should be ok to douch. Although your not supposed to douch anyway because it can throw off your Ph balance.

I would call your dr though just to be sure!!

Just like Angie said, you really shouldn't douche, with or without the IUS in place. Just regular washing is sufficent, douching actually forces the bacteria further into your body and can cause worse problems, so my advice is not to, but if you really feel that it is necessary I would call your ob/gyn and ask.
