Customer Question
Hi I had a copper...
Hi I had a copper iud put in 30 years ago. Due to a lot of extreme personal problems I was finally abler to go to a dr in 2005 and she told me there was no such thing and I must be delusional. I recently went and someone finally beleived me. I was put off as she told me I was lying. NOW my question is I just had a sonogram and the iud is in place. Is it within the realm of possibility just to leave it there as I have had NO problems and as I understand it would require surgical intervention. When I had it put in the dr said that it could last the rest of my life. What is your opinion thanks.

If the copper IUD is within the uterus but is not bothering you and you are not having any problems, (and it cannot be easily removed), there is no harm in leaving it in place.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
