Iud surgical removal failed, anyone try it with ultrasound?

Iud surgical removal failed, anyone try it with ultrasound?

Don't understand: When you say surgical, what do you mean? With a simple office hysteroscopy, it is very easy to remove an iud whose strings are otherwise inaccessible. Of course, that assumes there is an iud in place. The ultrasound would help you determine that in advance of the hysteroscopy. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

My IUD is inserted Feb 20, 1st Day of Mens is Feb 19, IUD removal is Mar 5 due to very painful abdomen. Sex last Mar 3 Eve. Am I going to get preggy?

My IUD is inserted Feb 20, 1st Day of Mens is Feb 19, IUD removal is Mar 5 due to very painful abdomen. Sex last Mar 3 Eve. Am I going to get preggy?

Low Probability: As you had sex while the IUD was still in the uterus (Sex Mar3, IUD removal Mar5), the chance of preg is quite small. Based on your last menstrual cycle, Mar 3 is around midcycle, which is around ovulation. However, the IUD in place is protective. Did you have the Mirena (levonorgestrel) or the Paraguard IUD? Either way, chance of preg is low. Without birth control, there is a 20% chance preg/month; Lower w/IUD. ...Read more

Maybe nothing: This may just be a normal variation in your periods but you should certainly check a pregnancy test to be sure. After 1 year of unprotected intercourse without conceiving, it is time to begin a work-up if you really want a baby. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible to have IUD removal during a non-gyn emergency?

Is it possible to have IUD removal during a non-gyn emergency?

No: EM physicians will not generally do elective procedures like IUD removal in the ED. There are just too many patients and too many unknowns in the waiting room coming in via EMS to do something like that. However, if you go to a small ED at a time when there are few patients, the doc MAY do it for you, but I wouldn't plan on it. ...Read more

Surgery for IUD removal in 2 weeks because it is stuck. How common is this? Will conceiving again be a problem?

Common: While it's not super common, it does happen. Typically women who have this issue don't have any problems with conception thereafter. You can ask your surgeon when they perform the surgery if there's evidence of any scar tissue? Scar tissue or inflammation in the pelvis can be associated with infertility. But having to have laparoscopic removal of an iud doesn't typically cause any problems. ...Read more

I had sex night before IUD removal I checked my calender it says I was fertile the day of removal drank Plan B two days later what are the chances?

Unlikely pregnant: Although iuds are not effective once they are removed, the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud may have a little bit of a lingering effect because of the hormonal component it includes. You took the Plan B within the appropriate window so you should be covered. Sounds like you might benefit from a reliable form of contraception now that the iud is gone. ...Read more

Bleeding: Ovulation occurs about 14 days from the first day of your period. The actual timing is dependent upon cycle length.

Implantation bleeding occurs 5 - 7 days after conception at about day 19 -22, assuming ovulation and conception was at day 14or 15. So, no. ...Read more
