I never felt my IUD but my bf mentioned it, I checked and I can feel it more than before. It doesn't stick out of vagina, am I still protected?

I never  felt my IUD but my bf mentioned it, I checked and I can feel it more than before. It doesn't stick out of vagina, am I still protected?

"Strung out": Don't get "strung out" if you can't feel the IUD string any longer but the iUD device itself.

Should I see urologist to check for vaginal prolapse? Do they look inside the vagina? Abdominal pain, will check for uti. Fullness in vag/protruding

Vaginal/Abdominal sx: 25 year old lady with abdominal pain, fullness protruding vagina. In this situation I would present to the emergency department at a hospital where both OB/GYN and Urology consultants are available. Ectopic pregnancy and other conditions need to be evaluated first, and your vital signs and hemodynamic stability and your earlier complaint of severe pain.Full history and exam needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Can a urologist check for uterine prolapse?? 1 week prior to period I feel full down there protruding out of vagina and pressure, and abdominal pain

Sure: A better option is a Gynecologist or a Urogynecologist. These are doctors who are likely best to evaluate for possible prolapse. If you preferred seeing a Urologist you will need to find out ahead of time if they treat female pelvic organ prolapse. ...Read more
