Rectal perforation with an intrauterine device: a case report.Contraception. 2015 Mar; 91(3):261-3.C
A 27-year-old woman presented for routine examination 1 year after intrauterine device (IUD) placement; strings were not visualized. The device was found to be penetrating through the rectal mucosa. It was removed easily through the rectum during an examination under anesthesia. Perforated IUDs with rectal involvement require thoughtful surgical planning to optimize outcomes.
