I have had my Mirena for 4.5 years... I started having bad cramps a few days ago. I went to the OBGYN yesterday and he told me that he couldn't find the IUD. He did a ultra sound and still couldn't find it. He said that he is going to talk to a radiologist this morning and see what they think he could do. He said that my IUD is supposed to come out in April 2013 but it will come out sooner. I have 2 daughters but I would like to try to have one more baby if we can. He told me that we would talk about it after I got it out to make sure there wasn't any damage. Has anybody been through this???

No, it is in there. I had an ovarian cyst in February and went to the ER. They did an x-ray and saw it then. I don't know how they can't find it 8 months later. I spoke to the nurse and the radiologist suggested that I get a CT scan. I am scheduled for one on Thursday. The OBGYN said that it could be behind my uterine wall. I hope that they find it soon. I can't take this pain anymore.

Has it possibly fallen out on its own? Gee wiz. Good luck either way.
