Mirena removal

Hi ladies
A few months ago I went to get my mirena iud removed and the dr couldn't find it so she sent me for an ultrasound which showed the mirena still there where it should be, tomorrow I'm going to a women's health clinic to get it removed hoping they are more skilled at locating it then a normal gp. Anyone else had this issue? Was urs found and removed easily enough?

i've had 2 IUD's. I got my most recent one removed because I kept hearing stories such as these. A friend of mine had hers grow in to her uterus?- whatever that means (surgically removed.. but she is OK) :) So I just decided to play it safe and get it taken out, it's been almost 5 years. The first one i had for 4 years with no problem, (and got pregnant easily afterwards). The doc said that it was sitting in the right place, but I still wanted to get it removed. Since then I have been on the Nuva ring, and have no complaints. My skin has actually cleared up also- I think the hormones in the IUD are stronger. Hope this helps! Keep us posted and good luck!
