Wow. This is one of those conditions no woman ever wants to think about. It never occurred to me that an IUD could actually perforate the uterus. These things have always sounded a little dangerous to me, anyway. I always felt there were surely better options for birth control than using one of these things.
If a doctor perforated my uterus during surgery, that's grounds for a malpractice suit, in my opinion, and I'm not a lawsuit-happy kind of person. It's just not something that should ever happen.
These are the kinds of conditions that make people afraid to go to the doctor.
