I Can’t Get Rid Of The IUD Because The Thread Isn’t Visible?
At noon, yesterday I took off the IUD at the spOG doctor but could not yet because the doctor said the IUD thread was not visible and was told to take an x-ray first to find out what clockwise the IUD was. How is that? I am worried. And do I have to take off the IUD when menses or can not when menses? The thing is I want to try to release again but my menses are finished. Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
One type of contraception is spiral or IUD (intrauterine device). Namely, inserting a T-shaped instrument with a plastic base material into the uterus. There are 2 types, namely IUDs that contain hormones and those containing copper. Both types of IUDs are effective in preventing pregnancy if installed correctly. Moreover, it can be used in the long run. However, this type of contraception still has a negative side, namely discomfort during installation and removal, the risk of having an infection of the reproductive system and the risk of bleeding. However, if the contraceptive user wants a pregnancy, fertility can be obtained immediately after the device is removed.
The release of an IUD has no special time. It's just to get comfort and convenience should be removed on the 4th or 5th day of menstruation. Because at that time menstrual blood does not flow freely and the cervix is still in an open condition.
If the doctor does not find the thread when removing the instrument, the doctor will ask you to do an X-ray examination to see the position of the IUD in the uterus. This is not a problem and just ordinary. You don't need to worry about this.
We recommend that for the problem of time you consult with the treating doctor. Because there may be other considerations in yourself according to the doctor so that the doctor can do the removal of your IUD at any time.
Thus hopefully useful.
