My fianc and I have decided we would like to conceive within the next 3-4 months. I went and had my IUD removed today and the doctor removed TWO iuds.
I had my first IUD inserted 8.5 years ago. 3.5 years ago I went to have that one removed and the new one inserted, but I guess that didn't happen and the doctor simply inserted the second one in.
I have searched the web and cannot find any information on having an expired IUD still in place or the effects of having 2 in at once.
Is there any information you can give me about this?
