The missing forgotten intrauterine contraceptive device.
Contraception. 1996 Aug; 54(2):117-9.C

Abstract

Failure to locate the strings of an intrauterine contraceptive device may mean that the device is within the uterine cavity, was expelled or, worst of all, has perforated the uterine wall. We describe a 36-year-old woman complaining of infertility in whom two missing devices were found within the pelvis after having perforated the uterus. This report demonstrates the need to investigate every case of a missing intrauterine contraceptive device. An algorithm for the proper management of such cases is suggested.
