A Mirena IUD that has moved where it doesn’t belong can put a woman in serious danger. The tiny contraceptive device can perforate the uterus and end up somewhere else in the body, which leaves women to suffer excruciating pain and potentially permanent injuries.
It’s very important to seek medical help immediately if you suspect Mirena has moved. A physician will be able to perform an exam, ultrasound or X-ray to locate the IUD and decide whether something needs to be done about it.
Signs Mirena has Moved Include:
- Strings can’t be felt
- Abdominal pain
- Pelvic pain
- Spotting or bleeding
- Blood in the urine
- Irritation while going to the bathroom
What You Can Do
You can feel for your IUD strings to determine its placement. Mirena might have moved if you can’t feel the strings, if they feel longer or shorter than they were before, or if you can feel the IUD against your cervix. If this happens, Mirena may need to be put back in place or removed by a health care provider. Never try to move Mirena or take it out by yourself. See your health care provider immediately.
Permanent Injuries caused by Mirena Migration
Women need to have Mirena surgically removed if migrates into the body. Some women have even needed hysterectomies after their IUD migrated. Surgical removal of Mirena is very painful and leaves scars that will always be a reminder of the intense suffering endured.
