[en] intrauterine device ; Uterine perforation
[en] The intrauterine device (IUD) is a widely used, effective and reversible means of birth control. Its insertion can be associated with perforation of the utuerus. This is a rare complication, but with possible serious clinical consequences. There is an increased risk of uterine perforation if the IUD is inserted during 6 months of post-partum or after uterine evacuation. A follow up by sonography is essential. The surgical removal of the ectopic IUD is imperious.
