I’m sorry this happened, this happened not to me but my sister in law. She had the paragard and it moved and punctured her uterus and colon she was in a lot of pain for a while before the surgery. She had to have surgery to remove it and had no complications. They were worried she would need a colostomy bag but she was fine and even went home the same day. I hope everything turns out okay

Thank you for your response. Do you happen to know if she had any restrictions after surgery?

Hi! 
my IUD removal with a complication went smoothly. 
No sex for awhile was my only restriction, and I had a new IUD put in and have had zero problems with it!

Thank you for the response. How did they remove it? Was it surgery or another method?

I think she just couldn’t lift more than 10 pounds or something like that for a little while. Not anything too bad and she recovered quick

I was knocked out and they used a scope to find it and pull it out. 
4 weeks no sex after was all!
