Risk of IUD Expulsion Can Be Minimized By This Odd Factor

In a large new collaborative study factors that lead individuals to have IUD expulsion have been brought to life.

We have known that heavy bleeding and having a large uterus lead to IUD expulsion more commonly.

But what was not known is that your weight is linked to whether your are more likely to have an IUD expulsion.

Specifically your weight at time of insertion is the issue. Leading researchers to suspect that improper insertion (in some cases) is the factor.

We can check your IUD placement by an exam and an ultrasound, so we’d be happy to see you for an appointment.
