Doctors of Nghe An Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital have successfully taken an IUD for a woman 12 weeks pregnant. Receiving information from the doctor, Ms. L. could not hide her surprise because she had placed an IUD for 1 year.
Accordingly, Ms. NTL (35 years old, residing in Nghi Loc district, Nghe An) has 3 children, all giving birth naturally. Ms. L. inserted an IUD (intrauterine device) one year ago; After the ring was inserted, Ms. L. did not go for regular check-ups. A week ago, Ms. L. often felt pain in her lower abdomen, so she went to Nghe An Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital for a checkup.
Here, the doctors discovered that she was pregnant, equivalent to 12 weeks in the uterus. The ultrasound image shows that, close to the amniotic cavity of the fetus is the image of the IUD, right at the waist of the uterus. The IUD has a metal structure located right next to the amniotic cavity, so the risk of miscarriage for L. is very high.

Doctors from the Department of Family Planning (Family Planning), Nghe An Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital gave detailed advice on the risks of pregnancy with an IUD. Ms. L. and her husband decided to surgically remove the IUD to save the fetus.
Right after that, the team of doctors took measures to get the IUD for Ms. L. without harming the fetus. After one day, Ms. L. had an ultrasound of fetal morphology at 12 weeks. The pregnant woman is currently being actively monitored at the hospital.
Doctor CKI. Nguyen Thi Phuong Lam, Dean of the Department of Family Planning, said: ”In more than a year, the Department of Family Planning has received nearly a dozen cases of unintended pregnancy, despite the insertion of an IUD. before. The cause of the ring placement and still pregnant can be due to: the size of the uterus and the size of the IUD are not suitable, the ring falls off without knowing it, the ring is slipped… Unfortunately, there are cases of developing present late, when the gestational age is large, hospitalized with the condition that the intrauterine device has caused rupture of membranes, uterine infection, preterm pregnancy, so it is impossible to keep the pregnancy.
