Doctors blast TikTok trend that sees women remove their own contraceptive coils

Doctors are warning against a controversial TikTok trend in which women take their own contraceptive out.

He said that in some situations, they may even need to use some force.He added: “The thing is, you have to know exactly how much force to use.“If you’re using too much force that might mean something is wrong, like the IUD might be stuck.“When you pull it, you can actually lodge it in a different part of the uterus and make the embedding of the IUD even worse.”

However, many women have been attempting to remove the IUD on their own for a while. A study Foster led on women’s thoughts about and attempts to remove their own IUD found that more than half of 326 women in the study were willing to try to take out their IUD themselves. But, of those who tried, only one in five succeeded.

For those who managed to get it out, the whole process took less than 4 minutes. The main difference between those who got it out and those who didn’t was the length of the IUD string. Strings that were at least 7 centimeters long were easier for women to feel and grab onto. Women who tried taking it out while propping one foot on a stool also had more trouble getting their IUDs out. headtopics.com

But OB-GYN Dr Gloria Bachmann, director of the Women’s Health Institute at the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, does not advise women doing it themselves. Bachumann told TODAY it's better to remove IUD in a 'controlled environment', as doctors are better equipped to deal with any issues that may arise.

She added: 'When we take it out in the office, everything is visualised as you are doing it more or less blindly (at home).“If it's embedded in the muscle layer of the uterus, which can happen, it can cause a lot more bleeding, a lot more pain and it can actually bring the uterus down with it, which is not something that one would want.”
