Can IUD Contraception Be Installed If The Uterus Is Short?
I want to ask, 6 months ago I gave birth in a SC, and only had my first menstruation when my child was 6 months old, I was steady for IUD contraception, but after I went to the puskesmas it turned out that my uterine midwife was short, so IUD could not be installed. is there really no hope for my birth control with an IUD if the uterus is short? Thank you in advance
Hello Isnaeni, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Responding to the story you are telling, it is true that before placing an IUD midwife or doctor usually do uterine measurements first, it is intended that when entering the IUD can be perfect in placement, and adjust the type of IUD.
In your case with a short uterine size, there are several possibilities that can occur here:
IUDs cannot be used because the size of the uterus is <5 cm. There is not enough IUD in your uterus at the puskesmas. An error occurred in the measurement of the uterus by the manual method. To ensure some of the above, you can visit an obstetrician. The obstetrician will check the uterus using ultrasound so that the size of the uterus can be known with certainty and there may be a type of mulit load IUD measuring 3.6cm.
Maybe you can learn other types of contraception that are available for your further consideration.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
