S/O how many had their iud fall out?

Ok, so the other threads have me wondering, how many of you have had their IUD fall out? And did you know when it fell out or were you totally oblivious to the fact it was no longer there?

I've had 3 paraguards and they all fell half way out. Like hanging from the top part of the T so the straight part with the string was through my cervix. I've tried everything to keep them in, waiting for 6 months pp, taking advil for 2 days before and 3 days after. Once it stayed in for about a year before it came through the first came through after 2 days
I'm getting ready to try one again and maybe now that I've had 4 kids my uterus will be less irritable. Wish me luck

How could you tell when it started to fall out? Did you know without checking yourself or going to the doctor?

My midwife told me to check it monthly so that was how I knew. The one at 2 days was the second one so I was checking it more often. My midwife told me I had a small muscular uterus and maybe after more kids it would stretch and weaken.

Keep your fingers crossed for me that it stays in this time. I really like the fact that it's non hormonal and besides the fact that they fall out, I love it

Re: S/O how many had their iud fall out?

My Mirena fell out about 8 weeks after I had it inserted. It fell out in the shower, so I knew it--if it had fallen out on the toilet or something, I might have been in trouble.

Mine is still in. But my best friend's Mirena fell out and she was oblivious, until she started feeling pregnant and now she is expecting next month.
