What would cause my IUD to fall out ......................... 1 child; North Carolina 7403 posts

Today, I went to the doctor about being pregnant. They did blood work and I will not know till tomorrow.
Well about 3pm today I started cramping really bad, like my IUD was placed.
I went to the bathroom about 15min ago and my IUD was floating in the tolit. I am freaking out, I wanted another but the same time I was scared to now this?



I can't get to the doctor till monday (OBGYN)
What can I do?
Besides not have sex I know that part.
My insurance only pays for 1 IUD every 5 yrs!

I dont know what causes it but typically if one falls out most doctors wont place another one.

It's a foreign object placed in your body it must have rejected it. How long have you had it?

Which IUD did you have?



I had the copper IUD in .. the first one dislodged, it didn't come fully out but was poking out of my cervix slightly.



I had just had a baby and was around 11-12 weeks PP, it is very common for them to dislodge soon after child birth.



I had that removed & a 2nd one placed & fell pregnant a few months later with it in, but had no issues with the placement etc of it.. i had it removed & it has resulted in this pregnancy - 21 weeks atm.

:!: This.



My DR won't let me have another IUD inserted alone because of my past experiences.. however, if i choose to get my tubes tied/essure done after this baby is born she said she'd consider placing another one for a 'back up' method since my B/C tends to fail on a regular basis & i can't take anything hormonal :?
