IUD Attempts 2008, 2009

Shortly after having our second daughter, I went in to be suited up with an IUD. It’s an inter-uterine device for birth control. My OB made several attempts but my uterus would reject it every time. He was quite shocked to say the least! The fourth attempt worked. They did an ultrasound to verify!  Honestly, I was so happy to not have to worry about taking a pill everyday! Hurray!

Shortly after I came home, I started hemorrhaging. After a few hours of heavy, consist flow, I call my OB and he met me in the emergency room. They found a slight cut in my uterus likely from the IUD. Stiches and no more IUD.

Now that was disappointing!! I waited a whole year before I went back in (yep you guessed it) to try it again! They tried three more times and to no avail! My uterus would not accept the IUD. Birth control or try for number three? That was the question!
