I went to get my Paragard IUD removed yesterday, which is supposed to be a simple procedure. One of the arms broke off and is embedded in my uterus. The IUD had slowly migrated down and was causing me intense pain and periods that lasted up to 10 days. The procedure to get the arm out may cause perforation to my uterus because of the way it's embedded. My other option is to get a hysterectomy, which I will have to do if the procedure perforates my uterus so I am probably just going to get one to avoid having 2 surgeries. Can I sue them?
