All right, I was wondering if any of the women on vegweb.com have IUDs? Some stuff has been happening with mine recently, and mine is fairly new as well.
Long story short, I'm pretty sure mine has flipped around and is resting horizontally in me when it should be held vertically. The strings are missing, as well. Do any of you know about problems like these?
I have a paragard IUD, and had it inserted 5 weeks ago. I know the chances of it expelling is higher for the first couple months or so. Still, I'm worried-- gonna get it checked out tomorrow.
If you have any info, that would be really helpful. Thanks. :ouch:
You are doing everything you're supposed to do. Try to stay calm. It either was expelled, and you don't have to worry about it, or it has moved and pulled the strings up with it; in which case the dr will do a simple procedure to either correct it or remove it.
Sorry I'm not much more help.
lol, don't worry about tmi here....we don't shirk at much if anything anymore when it comes to the body!!
May I suggest some chocolate?
My Daughter in law had an IUD that embedded itself in her uterine wall, it gave her an infection, so she had to have it removed. A trip to your GYN should clear up your worry.
So, how'd the visit w/ the doc go?
Now take it easy for a few days!! Your body has been pretty hard on itself and needs a period of forced relaxation.
