Hello and welcome,
I understand the problem.
In my opinion it is better to get it removed and insert a new one as you will not be able to feel the thread. So inadvertant expulsion or displacement of IUD will not be detected early.
The removal of IUD is easy even if the thread is broken. The doctors have an IUD hook that is inserted inside the uterus
and the IUD gets entagled in it. It is a very simple procedure requires just 5 minutes but must be done under anesthesia
. So do not worry about this at all.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
