You should be able to feel the strings protruding from your cervix. If you are worried see the doctor or nurse and get it checked.

The IUD is not more likely to move during exercise. There are no activity restrictions when using the IUD.

Signs that your IUD may have moved in a way that needs attention include change in string length, disappearance of strings, feeling the IUD at the opening of your cervix, or cramping or bleeding with sex. Remember that it is normal for the IUD to move slightly within the uterus.

The inside of the uterus is a small space. The IUD fits inside relatively snugly. The IUD can't be moved by running, jumping jacks, ski jumping, or any other such activity.

You can get an IUD from your women's health care provider, family planning office, or family practitioner. The IUD manufacturers often have directories that tell you names of local providers in your area.

how can you tell if someone has moved on

Because it is securely attached to the IUD, an IUD string is unlikely to fall out. If you find your string is missing, contact your health care provider and use a backup method of birth control until you confirm that the IUD is still in place. A missing string can mean the IUD fell out without you knowing, but typically the string just moved up into the cervix.

Just had the LEEP surgery... They had to take out the Mirena because of the string...Now I have to pay over 800 just to get a new IUD put in.

If the IUD is not at the top of the uterus, you may be at risk for pregnancy. If you think this has happened, use a back up method of birth control until you've consulted with your health care provider.

Yes, it can be perfectly normal. You mention an IUD, if this is a hormonal IUD that you've just had inserted this may be the reason for the longer bleed as it can take your body time to adjust to the hormones in the new IUD. It's also possible that the IUD has shifted so check your strings and feel for the bottom of the IUD through the cervical opening to make sure it's not moved. If concerned or if the bleeding continues go see your doctor or go to a sexual health clinic for more help.

Well the IUD is around 99% effective but it is also possible for it to be expelled or moved which can cause it to be less effective. I suggest that you take a pregnancy test ASAP because an IUD can cause an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or premature birth.

There is no known risk of uterine damage with IUD removal. If the IUD was removed intact, there are no other concerns. Please contact your health care provider to discuss any symptoms or worries you're experiencing.

I would consult a health clinic and ask them to get a 2nd opinion. You will need to find a doctor that it is not in the same health system as they usually stick together. Alternately, get an ultrasound and find out if the IUD is at the fundus. If so, the doctor didn't move the IUD.

No. Amoxicillin will not interact poorly with the Mirena IUD. There are medications that should not be taken, so be sure to tell a doctor about the IUD before getting a prescription.

No, the IUD does not affect the accuracy of the IUD

An IUD insertion is an in-office procedure. The IUD is inserted into the uterus.

You can get trichomoniasis regardless of whether you have an IUD. The IUD does not cause or prevent trich.

User Avatar

Usually you won't know, you would have to have a doctor tell you it has been expelled.

User Avatar

Yes! Any doctor will tell you that the uterus of a woman who has had children is larger. I myself never had a pregnancy and got the IUD anyway, it hurt all the time!

User Avatar

You can get an infection with or without the IUD. Expulsion of an IUD doesn't increase the risk of infection.

Yes, you can certainly get an IUD if you have HPV.

How do you get your IUD removed

Weight does not affect the IUD.
