One of the most painful experiences a man can go through is when he has to find out whether his IUD, like other devices inserted for fertility, is sticking in the uterus. Usually, doctors will insert the IUD, and if it’s not moving, there will be a scan to see whether it’s in place. The pain that one feels, especially at night, can be quite severe. In fact, many patients will take Tylenol or other medications just to deal with the pain. However, there are natural ways to find out if you have an IUD stuck in your uterus.
During a pelvic examination, doctors will usually insert a speculum called an anoscope to insert a flexible tube into the uterus to determine whether or not the fertility implant is still in place. During this process, they will feel the ovaries as well as the fallopian tubes. You might feel some pressure, or perhaps a slight burning sensation. Your doctor may also feel a small lump near the vaginal opening. These and other tests will determine whether or not you are infertile.
If you can’t feel your IUD string and don’t see any signs of blood in the urine, it means that the implant has moved outside of your body, typically in the fallopian tubes. The next step is to send an ultrasound to see where it is. This will determine if you should undergo surgery or not. If the egg was implanted in the uterus, the fallopian tube must be opened to allow it to be retrieved.
However, if the egg was not fertilized, the IUD must be removed because it is cancerous. When removing the IUD, the doctor may choose to use a scalpel or a laser to cut through the scar tissue. Bleeding may occur as a result. The doctor will likely insert a speculum into your vagina to take out the foreign object. A small amount of medicine may be given to you to numb the area before the operation.
Some doctors recommend removing both the testicles and the fallopian tube if you suffer from this symptom. This is known as “total hysterectomy.” Although the surgery may cause a short loss of feeling in the testicles and the fallopian tubes, it usually leaves them intact. However, you may experience some bleeding after the operation.
If you have had problems with your ovaries in the past, you may have trouble getting pregnant again. In these cases, the surgery may be unnecessary. However, if the problem was in your testicles, you may wish to remove them in order to reduce your chances of suffering from further difficulties in pregnancy. The ovaries will function properly once they are intact.
Sometimes, women experience problems with the mobility of their ovaries or the functioning of their fallopian tubes. In these cases, the doctor will place a laparoscope-shaped device directly onto your ovaries or the tubes. The idea is to allow them to be guided through the process of removal. You may feel some burning, tingling, or other strange sensations as they are moved. After the surgery, you will probably not be able to have sexual intercourse.
If you suffer from the symptoms mentioned above, you may want to visit your doctor to confirm your suspicions that you are indeed suffering from this symptom. It is important to confirm that the condition actually is IUD by checking the condition of the strings on the testicles. If the id is in good health, it will stand straight up with the assistance of the strings. If there are multiple IUDs or missing strings, the condition may be more serious and requires a procedure called “follicular unit extraction” to remove them.
