Can a IUD get lost in you while you have it?

3 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
Very uncommon but an iud can perforate the uteriine wall and end up inside the abdominal cavity.
An iud can be expelled by the uterus and may come out on the back of a tampon without the persons knowledge. Learning to check for iud string position and presence is very helpful but if in doubt, a professional evaluation is warrented.
