Doctor :   IUDs come out during the first year of use in about 5% of women who use them. This is most likely to happen during the menstrual period and in women who have previously given birth. Women using IUDs should check their pads or tampons daily while menstruating and feel regularly to make sure the string is in place

Doctor :   Cramping and backache may occur in the first few hours after an IUD is placed. Bleeding may occur for a couple of weeks after an IUD is placed.
Doctor :   Some women have increased menstrual pain and heavy periods while using the copper IUD, but these symptoms are decreased in those using the hormonal IUD.
Doctor :   Do you have any specific Q?
Doctor :   At least monthly, women should check to be sure that they feel the string coming out of the cervix to make sure the IUD remains properly in place.
Doctor :   To check for the string, sit or squat and with clean hands, insert the index or middle finger into the vagina until the vagina is felt
Doctor :   Do not pull the string
Doctor :   If a woman does not feel the string, if the string feels too short or long, or if she feels the IUD itself, she should call the doctor.
Doctor :   Do you follow ?
Doctor :   Women who have severe abdominal pain or cramps, pain or bleeding with sex, unexplained fever and chills, or unexplained bleeding after the adjustment phase should call their clinician immediately.
Doctor :   because this indicates infection
Doctor :   . But with with family planning it is safe
