Ultrasound Guided Iud Removal
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.

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.

What do you think of exablate mr-guided focused ultrasound? My dr wants to perform a myoectomy, d & c, and place a nova IUD for submucosal fibroids.
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.

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
