Is It Dangerous Or Risky To Have Surgery To Get A Iud Out
Possibly: All surgical procedures carry risks. However, iud removal is usually a simple office procedure. There are instruments designed to be used in the clinic to extract an iud when the string is not visible - usually simple and safe. Sometimes hysteroscopy is required to see inside the uterus to locate and remove the iud - this is still a minor procedure but with some risks. ...Read more
Impregnant with the iud. Tried to get it removed w/ surgery today&was unsuccessful. They wnt in through my V.now im having bad cramping. Is baby okay?
Call Ob/Gyn: Cramping, especially, after that type of procedure could just be from irritation, but can also be a potential early sign of miscarriage. You should call your Ob/Gyn to discuss this right away. Best wishes. ...Read more
Not long: Removing an iud is usually done in the office, and is a relatively quick procedure; only a very small number of iuds actually require a surgical procedure to remove them. Usually Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) is enough to treat cramping afterward, and you can return to work the same day. If you have a new iud inserted when the old one is removed, you can expect a bit more cramping afterward. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Scared for my surgery to have my IUD removed in two weeks. It is stuck, not lost. How did this happen? What is it stuck on? Very nervous.
Hysteroscopy: It's most likely that your iud just got inserted a little too far or at an angle, causing the arms to get lodged into the uterine wall, as opposed to just resting gently in the uterine cavity. The removal surgery is usually fairly benign. Usually a hysterosocpy where they use a camera to find its exact location in the uterus and pull it out with gentle traction. Sometimes this isn't even necessary. ...Read more
Im having a IUD taken out because it moved out of place & now surgery is needed is there any other options instead of anesthesia?
In office or surgery: If in office you could have a 1 paracervical block. If in operating room options r 2caudal, 3spinal or epidural or general are the options. U recover/go quicker with a general.

If you use your legs avoid the others but these are very very rare complications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not necessary: A paracervical block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) around your cervix. Some doctors may choose to use a paracervical block while removing an iud. Others believe the injection itself is just as painful than taking the iud out. Typically, no anesthesia is needed for removing an iud. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How long do surgery last for a IUD to be taken out & how long to hea from it & what to experince during surgery while sleep?
IUD removal: If the iud is in the uterus and the strings visible on vaginal exam, it is removed in a few seconds in office. If it is in the uterus but strings not visible, surgery is vaginal and only asleep for 15-30 minutes. You'd have mild cramping after. If it is outside the uterus (in the pelvis), surgery is a laparoscopy. You'd be asleep for 30 min to an hour and sore for a few days. ...Read more
