The IUD is placed in your

The IUD is placed in your uterus by a doctor using special tools and anesthetic. In the same way you will need a doctor to remove it. It is important to understand that you should never try to remove an IUD by yourself. Trying to remove it on your own can result in pain and injury.
Contact your ob/gyn right away for an appointment for removal.
