Expelled IUD's - any chance of success?
13 Replies
Gestalt - September 25

Hi there,

I wanted to find out if anybody can give me any advice on whether I should give up on IUD's or if there is something I could try:

I had my first copper IUD inserted in August '08 and lost it about two months ago. After a lot of hassle about unwanted pregnancy and a termination I had another copper coil inserted which promptly fell out about a week later. Now I'm wondering whether my womb is just not an IUD-friendly place or whether the second one was expelled because I was still bleeding heavily after the termination? Also, would the Mirena make a difference because I wouldn't have any or very light periods?

I just don't want to become pregnant again!!! I've got all the children I ever wanted to have and thought I'd found the most reliable contraceptive...

Thanks for your replies...

i'm not so sure about IUD's but maybe you're right. maybe it just doesn't work for you.

don't you think that the IUD wasn't inserted properly? why don't you ask for your doctor for other alternatives?

IUD's must be inserted in the middle of your menstrual cycle. because it is when the cervix is the most open to prevent it from wrong insertion.

what happens when the IUD is not inserted properly? aside from getting pregnant, will it cause pain or infection?

persistent pain and heavy bleeding will occur when the IUD has not been inserted properly.it also increases the chance of infection.

hi all! i've heard that IUD is one of the most popular types of birth control. needless to say, i had mine inserted a year ago. i like the fact that i don't need to worry contraceptive on a regular basis. but lately, i feel itchiness inside my private area. is it possible to have infection while on IUD?

 

jenna - November 27

have it check izzy it might be infection!getting an IUD involves a visit to a clinic once in a while to prevent infections.

don't take advantage of the situation. infection on private areas are dangerous. it can be life treathening.
