I got a Mirena IUD put in 5 months ago had the routine follow up a month later and it was still in place. The last two months I was sure I was bleeding more often it was like I bled for a week then I would stop for two then bleed another week and then stop for a week. Then I had sex with my bf and started bleeding another week after I had just finished so I said forget it and called the dr. She wanted me to get the placement of it checked so a few days later I had a transvaginal ultrasound. My IUD wasn't there according to the technician. Obviously I had been bleeding and using a ton of tampons but I was and still am pretty sure I would have seen or felt something. I went in for a follow up and they said it must have just fallen out. I am concerned that since I have a retroverted cervix or something like that along with a shorter area for the IUD to fit (5cm instead of 6-10) that it has perforated and is floating around in my body. I called Mirena or Bayer the maker of the IUD and they said it really is possible that it could perforate and I could dismiss the pain. so now I called the dr and told them I want an xray to know for sure. Is this normal? I hate feeling like I worry too much but I think I need to see that its not in there via xray. Thankfully I am not using it for birth control it was for endomitriosis which is dumb when all it made me do was bleed, very couter productive.

I think that since you didn't see/feel it fall out (which you would THINK you would have right?!?) that the x-ray is for peace of mind.

 

I doubt that it has perforated anything without any pain, but at the same time, you can just never know these things forsure.

 

Go get the x-ray and get some peace of mind! hug2.gif
