An IUD is a tiny device that is put into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. Essentially, IUDs prevent pregnancy by changing the way the sperm cells move so they cannot reach an egg. These devices are long-term, reversible and one of the most effective birth control methods available to women.
Three years ago, mother-of-one T.S., consulted with her physician and decided to get an intrauterine device (IUD). She had it in for three years and it never gave her any problems until last November when she felt a sharp pain. She went to the hospital and an x-ray revealed the birth control had shattered into pieces and shifted far up her stomach into her liver.
