So after what felt like a plastic device peridically poking out of my cervix, and after a re check by my gyno and by my pcp, I called my gyno back and said it was not right and my pcp suggested an ultrasound.

Went to that appointment today and I was pleasantly surprised to hear that I'm not a raging lunatic!!!!!! My ParaGard was not up high enough and was in my cervical canal. I had a new one replaced and they said we would check with the ultrasound again. That one was up higher, yet still not correctly placed. They yanked that one as well and put a new one in with the ultrasound machine and apparently, I won't have babies for ten years and it is in there correctly. As previously stated it didn't hurt me, so I've technically had a ParaGard inserted in me 6 times from them being replaced or just not coming out of the catheter within 2 week span, so anyone that is scared just do it lol. I'm still a little uneasy about it due to it not being in not once, but twice correctly, so it will take awhile for me to trust my IUD I think. Anyone with similiar experiences with this I would like some words of wisdom. The point is, if you have to go doctor to doctor do it, you know your body better than anyone else and from the outside my ParaGard looked fine and she had never come across this before (heard of others, but not personally. )
