Unhappy IUD lost, Missing strings, HELP

OHkay so I got Mirena in July 2005, no problems, in 2006 I went for a checkup and they couldn't find the strings. They did an ultrasound and it was still in there, and told me I could leave it in. Now its almost time to have it removed, and when I went to the Dr she could not find the strings, and has scheduled me for an ultrasound to find it and then have it removed. She said I need to bring money for medicine possibly depending on how they take it out, so what I want to know is How are they going to get it out???? I have spent hours googling and reading and I just want to know if this has happened to you and if so what did they do to you? HELP ME PLEASE = (

Re: IUD lost, Missing strings, HELP

I'm sorry you are going through this. Mine is "missing" as well where it is in place but they can't find the strings. My doctor did tell me it will be more difficult to remove and I should have it removed while I'm having a period to make it easier to get out. It still sounds pretty painful but I've only had it for a year and a half so I have some time yet.
