@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  I’m just 5 weeks out from my natural MC. It took my body from time I started spotting to passing it about 12 hours. And then bled and cramped for another 2-3 days. I was also almost 9 weeks

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  the same thing happened to me last year but with the Mirena.  The progesterone pushed the pregnancy foward and I personally had a long hull with hormonal recovery.  It was emotionally a hard time for me, despite the fact that we were avoiding pregnancy. Hopefully since the copper IUD is hormone free, your recovery will be easier.  I had to get some blood work done to make sure that my HCG levels tapered off correctly. Which takes longer for some people then others.  Finding a birth control I was happy with after was difficult because before the pregnancy I was truly happy with my mirena and the lack of side effects. How are you feeling about the whole thing?

If you have an IUD – I am sure you weren’t anticipating on getting pregnant? (Not that you wanted a miscarriage of course). What has your doctor advised you abou tthe IUD?

I’d be worried that you’re going to expel the IUD with the miscarriage (although if it didn’t work for you, it may need to come out anyway). Did your doctor ever visualize proper placement of the IUD with an ultrasound?

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  Don’t feel selfish feeling that way! I bawled my eyes out even though I was techniquely preventing pregnancy.  It was like mourning something I only had for a brief moment.  Even though I was seeing a positive pregnancy test I knew that the odds of it being a normal pregnancy were virtually nill.  It was an overwhelming feeling. Mine was removed ASAP.  My OB said that the odds are extremely low of uterine pregnancy but possible. He too was fearful of an ectopic, because of that he performed a procedure afterwards that injected radio oqaue dye into my uterus and through my fallopian tubes to ensure there were no blockages because I do desire pregnancy in the future.  He said he did not have a good explination as to why it happened because prior to removal I had a transvaginal ultrasound done to ensure it was in proper placement and it was.  I am glad I saw your post because it is such a rare thing that I am glad I can share my experience with someone.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  yep, for me the pain was the most painful thing my body has EVER gone through, but once the fetus is passed the cramps started to get duller and duller…
