Baby girl was born with an IUD on the edge of the placenta
After delivering, the doctor observed that there was an IUD lying close to the edge of the placenta on the mother’s uterine surface.
On May 28, Doctor Ho Cao Cuong – Obstetrics Department – Hung Vuong Hospital (Ho Chi Minh City) said that the hospital had just received and successfully delivered a pregnant woman with NTXT, 35 years old, residing in Tan Phu, City. HCM gave birth for the third time while using an IUD.
Ms. T had the first two vaginal births and had an IUD inserted 2 years ago. However, when she found that her period was delayed, she went for an ultrasound to find out that the fetus was implanted in the uterus.
“I am worried that the IUD will affect the fetus. However, the doctor advised her that the IUD is always outside the amniotic sac while the baby is in the amniotic sac, so there is a very safe separation between the ring and the fetus, and she is completely assured to maintain the pregnancy until the day of “blooming flowers and pistils” – Doctor Cuong said.

At the 39th week of pregnancy, Ms. T went into labor and gave birth to a baby girl weighing 3.2 kg. After delivering, the doctor observed that there was an IUD lying close to the edge of the placenta on the mother’s uterine surface.
Dr. Cuong said that according to research in the US, the failure rate after 12 years of cumulative IUD insertion ranges from 2.1 to 2.8% in cases of correct technique and regular follow-up. You should not be too confused when using this method.
Therefore, in order to reduce the risk of failure, women should go to a trusted medical facility to have the ring and periodically re-examine according to the appointment.
