Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
After a scan only the position of coil can be detected. If it is in the uterus, it can be removed thru vagina using some instruments. But if by any chance, it has perforated and reached the abdomen then either you can leave it as it is as it is sterile or it can be removed surgically.
