Contraception Is Disturbing When Having Sex?
Congratulations, Sing, I want to know about Iud, I have installed it for two years, but for several weeks, the thread of Iud has not been felt anymore by my husband, even though before my husband always complained of pain, if I got sorry, the problem was because I was afraid there was something because I often have pain in the pelvis too … thanks
Good afternoon Ladist, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
The remaining IUD thread serves as one of the markers that the IUD is still in the womb and also as a tool to remove the IUD again. If the thread has not been felt, there are several possibilities that can occur such as the release of the IUD (IUD out of the uterus), the IUD has shifted or moved from where it should be, or the IUD has caused damage to the uterus.
To find out if the thread is already gone or if it is still in place, it helps you do the inspection directly to the doctor. The doctor will insert the device into your vagina to determine whether the IUD is still in place or not. After determining whether the thread is still present or not, the new doctor will determine the next action for your situation. If the thread is still present, then most likely the IUD is still in place, but if the thread is already gone, the doctor will recommend that you do an ultrasound or even have an X-ray on your abdominal or pelvic area to determine the location of the IUD that has shifted from that place and an IUD will be removed.
Regarding complaints of pain in your pelvic area should also be conveyed to the doctor while you do an examination of the position of your IUD, to ascertain also the cause of the complaint, such as pelvic inflammation, urinary tract infections, tears in the uterus and others.
For the time being, avoid first having sexual relations at least 2 days before checking the doctor. And also recommended to maintain cleanliness in your feminine area every day. If you feel vaginal discharge that smells or is like pus, pelvic pain is felt more intense accompanied by fever and nausea and vomiting immediately take yourself to the doctor or emergency room of the nearest hospital to get treatment.
I hope this helps.
