Does anyone know how much it cost to have an IUD removed? My ob/gyn is Lake Cumberland Womens Health Specialist. When I had it put in I had insurance but now I don't have any insurance. However I need it removed because it's causing me problems and I could be pregnant.

Have you called them and asked them about it? Sometimes the insurance will still cover the treatment since you had insurance at the time the treatment started. Also the health department charges you by your monthly income...I have known girls to take those things out themselves, I wouldn't do that though...good luck!

I had mine removed and I didn't pay anything b/c it had punctured my uterus and was an emergency. I would say that if you had an appointment you would probably have to pay just for the dr. visit.

I had mine removed by Dr. Crosslin. It didn't cost anything for removal, as long as they don't have to a pap or anything.

What sort of problems is it causing? The reason I ask is because I also have an IUD, the mirena, and I cramp pretty badly at random times..among other things.

You must be careful....IUD's have a history of causing cancer and babies in the tube.

The exact same thing happened to me. I had mine put in right after I had my first daughter. A few months later, I started having severe pains, I thought I was dying. Come to find out, I was pregnant. They had to do an x-ray, cause they couldn't find the baby or the IUD. The IUD was in my stomach cavity, it had cut through my uterus and went into the upper part of my stomach. I also had a tubal pregnancy. They had to do an emergency surgery. The baby had caused my tube to swell and almost bust. I was bleeding internally, and they had to remove the IUD, the baby, part of my tube, and perform a D&C. I do not recommend a IUD to anyone. It caused me to have multiple miscarriages afterward.
I did not have insurance at the time. I had just lost it. They should still remove it if you are having difficulties. It can be life threatening. Call them and talk to them.

I've had my mirena since April 2007 and it's just now giving me problems. I had been able to feel my strings up until about a week and a half ago and now I can't find them. My boyfriend had also been able to feel them and now he can't either. I had sore boobs for a couple of days and I'm feeling bloated and have cramping. Truth be told I feel pregnant! Like I said I've had my mirena almost 3 years and I've had these strange symptoms for the past 4-5 days.

Oh my goodness! This is so scary. I have a doctors appointment wedensday, and I am definately going to have them check out my mirena and see if it is still in place. I am, without a doubt going to have them remove it. Thank you so very much for all of your information.[And I am so sorry to hear that you had to deal with such a tradgedy.]

If you think you are pregnant you need to go to the doctor ASAP no matter the cost! If the mirena has moved then it's very possible to get pregnant. However if you keep it in you could lose the baby, have a tubal pregnancy. Then if your not pregnant you could have serious problems just like Silvers said or worse. Really call the doctor tomorrow morning!!!! Or go to the Hospital and see about getting a spend down card(not sure if that is the correct name for it) It's where the hospital pays up to a certain amount. My husband had to get it once when his insurance wouldn't pay for a vist.

i'm not sure how much it cost to get it removed but as a personal user of mirena i love it. as a breastfeeding mother i can only take progestrin only hormonal birth control and the mini pill wasn't an option bc i'm not good with pills at all. for me yes i cramp sometimes really badly but as a mother it's a pain im willing to take bc i am doing whats best for my child. i wish u the best of luck though. and am sorry for the other women that can't deal with the mirena. hope u all get to feeling better

As I said before.....there is a huge history of problems with IUDs. I think it was during the late 70s and early 80s they used them which caused all kinds of problems. Many Many females had developed cancer and had their organs removed which left them unable to have children. Many had babies in the tubes which damaged them to where they could not have children. I am sure many died due to some of these issues as well. Then they come out with the same thing just made out of different matterial. The same outcome appears to have happened again. I am sure you can file a legal case against them for such. I would suggest anyone who has one inside them get it removed now. You may be one of the very few it does not affect in a negative way but who would want to take a huge chance on such a thing. To the one who is breast feeding....use condoms....there are better things that are safe to use to keep from having babies.

to aight i personally will be using condoms and my mirena implant. condoms,mirena,nor breastfeeding are 100% but i feel better knowing that using all three in combination will work better then using just one thing. the only 100% fool proof plan is abstinece but this is going to happen

go to the health department, if you need to see a doctor they will refer you and pay for it
