what are possible complications that can come from using an i.u.d?

Injury: The worst complications with an iud deal with injury and/or infection. Uterine injury (perforation) at insertion can lead to bleeding, pain, or intra-abdominal placement. Infections can occur which can lead to scarring or abcess formation. More common are iud expulsions which can go unnoticed & lead to unintended pregnancy. Overall, they are very safe & provide excellent birth control. Take care.
