Hello! I've searched all over the Internet looking for stories similar to mine, and am coming up blank. In November 2013 I went to my ob/gyn to have my Paragard (copper) IUD removed, and it broke on the way out. A piece (one of the arms of the "T"; I'm not sure, but I think it might have a small copper band around it) is still embedded in me, most likely in my myometrium. My doctor performed a hysteroscopy in hopes of removing the broken piece, but he was unable to find it. I have been unable to conceive -- with the exception of one miscarriage, in November 2014 (I miscarried at about 5 weeks; no previous pregnancies). I am 36 years old so my age might be the issue, but otherwise my husband and I appear to be healthy. He had his sperm checked and it seems OK; I had an HSG (my right tube seemed slightly less open than the left, but my doctor thinks the technician just didn't pump the fluid through my tubes hard enough). I appear to at least be giving off the right hormones to get monthly positive results on OPKs (although this isn't an indicator of ovulation; I tried temping but get up at radically different times on different days so was worried the results weren't accurate). My question is: Has anyone ever heard of any other women who have been trying to conceive with a piece of Paragard inside them? My doctor says he doesn't think there is still any copper in me, because it would have shown up when they did the HSG, plus he thinks the IUD piece is not in the uterine cavity... but I'm still worried that maybe my copper levels are elevated. (Copper is what makes the IUD a contraceptive, after all.) I even wonder if copper was somehow related to why I miscarried (although I know miscarriages are *very* common, and it likely would have happened anyway). I would be thrilled to hear any stories from anyone else, see any links to information about this issue... anything; I'm coming up dry in my search, and my doctor has never had a patient's IUD break like that before (lucky me, right?). Thank you so much for any help you can give me!
