A camera: That means they are putting a camera into your uterus. You probably lost the string or it broke and they need a better look to pull it out. How long it will take depends on what they see, but it usually not more than 30 minutes for this.

Procedure: Your doctor will insert a long, thin instrument with a camera on it called the hysteroscope into your vagina through your cervix to look in your uterus. Once the iud is located, it can be removed easily. The procedure usually takes approximately 30 minutes but maybe a little longer depending on how difficult it is to extract the iud. Ask your doctor about the procedure.
