to quote some comments I just gave Basil in his topic :
" listen to your body and don't try to " tough it out "
if you have ANY ???, concerns or issues ... get those Docs earning their pay !! "

Glad you are getting it attended to

I've had that iud(mirena) since 2016 but it's my 3rd or 4th one. My uterus is tilted which is what made my iud look upside down on x-ray. It's placed fine. The ultrasound showed the tilted uterus. I had diarrhea and abdominal pain this morning. They say it's a virus but I think it's whatever is going on with my digestive system. They only did an x-ray which was obscured by gas, urine analysis and blood tests for inflammation.
