IUD issues

Katherine • Police wife 👮mommy to Benjamin and Jason 💙💙

So I've had my IUD for almost a year. I went to the gynecologist because I've been having pain in my lower stomach pelvic area. While he was doing my exam he noticed he couldn't see my IUD or the string. So now I have to go back for a sonogram. One of my friends said this happened to her and she had to have it surgically removed. Has this happened to anyone else?
