    I had 2 doctors refuse to take mine out, I'd been in severe pain for the first 2 months following its insertion and these 2 doctors told me I need to wait it out, it's still settling and the pain would subside and that it wasn't possible for an IUD to cause so much pain, ended up going to ED it was that painful and they had to surgically remove it, bam 3 days later no more pain

    This county is becoming more and more anti-women's rights..and anti-women's health. It's sick how this county hates its own people. The only freedom America has is the freedom to die with/without medical intervention.

    This is why its important to fund planned parenthood. I had absolutely zero problems getting them to remove mine, no judgment and sent me on my way with free condoms. The clinic I went to didn't even have abortion services.

    As a nurse, i will agree that you dont want to vaso-vagal alone. As a professional vasovagal-er, it isn't that big a deal and I actually would prefer if it happened when nobody else was around. I don't like being hovered over, coddled, or asked if I ate today 6 times. I just need to lay down until I feel better.

    Okay, I'm not understanding why a doctor would refuse to take it out... How can a doctor refuse care to someone when it's a basic standard procedure. If they didn't refuse to put it in, why refuse to take it out.

    I had to, cause I couldn't afford to go to the doctor to get it taken out.

    I can't even imagine. Mine had gone through my Uterine wall embedded into my cervix and there was so much scar tissue I had 3 surgical Procedures to remove it. When the doctor attempted first try the strings broke off

    I had to threaten to sue my Dr cuz she was telling me she wouldn’t remove it! I was bleeding for 3 weeks straight with a week break in between for 2 YEARS!! Tried to get it removed & was told no! Told to take 1200 Mg ibuprofen 3 times a day for 2 weeks (I weigh 110lbs-that could kill me!) I finally threatened to sue her & cussed her out & she removed it. Switched Drs & will NEVER have another tell me what is or isn’t going on with MY BODY!!
