Have gastroparesis around the time IUD inserted. Related?

My daughter was diagnosed with gastroparesis and nothing the doctors have prescribed has worked. The symptom started around the same time she got an IUD inserted (copper one). Is it possible the IUD is causing her gastroparesis? She we just get it removed since nothing else is helping and she is vomiting every YYYY@YYYY

good morning sir,
i can understand what your daughter is going through with gastroparesis. i hope doctors have already prescribed prokinetics for the same. so please continue these medications and mean while check for blood sugarand thyroid profile. if these tests are normal , contact your physician for combination of medications with which the problem can be solved.
have a nice day.
