Iud surgical removal failed, anyone try it with ultrasound?

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?

Either way, chance of preg is low. Without birth control, there is a 20% chance preg/month; Lower w/IUD. ...Read more

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.
