Why you shouldn’t remove IUDs at home

Although many TikTok users seem encouraged by Mikkie’s video and have claimed that they would try to remove their IUDs at home, experts have warned about the method.

According to Yahoo, health expert Dr. Bajekal, said, “1 in 2 women don’t know exactly where their cervix is, and since the IUD is placed deep inside the uterus, grasping the sutures and removing the uterus without proper equipment can be quite a challenge. “

Emphasizing the importance of getting medical attention to do this, she said, “Healthcare professionals have specialized equipment, lighting, and clinical experience that generally make a potentially uncomfortable procedure a very minor process.”
