Shocking: IUD Goes Wrong as Woman Loses Legs, Womb and Hand

A woman, Tania Smith, based in the US has revealed how she lost some major parts of her body to complications arising from the use of IUD method of birth control.

Woman Loses Uterus, Hands and Legs to Complications from a Common Birth Control Method-dailyfamily.ng

A hysterectomy which is the removal of all or part of the uterus (womb) had to be performed on her.

The issue started after she had her first child and the Doctor suggested that she go for the IUD method of family planning that is meant to stay in her body for five years.

According to PlannedParenthood Intrauterine Device (IUD) is a tiny device that’s put into your uterus to prevent pregnancy. It’s long-term, reversible, and one of the most effective birth control methods out there. It’s a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T.

Three years later, she went for her medical checkup but nothing was found in her body. She was at work one day when she felt a sharp pain in her stomach. On getting to the hospital, an x-ray revealed the birth control had shifted far up her stomach, into her liver.

A surgery was done on her but afterwards, she started bleeding heavily which led to having her womb taken out as her ovaries had turned black. Her organs also started failing and she had to be placed on a breathing machine.

The complications caused her hands and feet to decay and will have to get them amputated. Tanai is sharing her story to warn other women of the possible complications that could result from the use of IUD.

Here is her full story:

 

”Sometimes things happens in your life and you don’t know why. You question yourself why me or what did i do to deserve this? But what you should be asking is what can i learn from it. I’m finally coming out to tell my story because i feel like i can help someone.

 

I’m not here for people opinions but to simply tell my story. Six weeks after I had my daughter I was offered by the doctors a form of birth control called the IUD. I accepted because I was told that it was safe and it was he best type. It had never gave me any problems up until November of 2017.

 

I had it for 3 years so far. I was told that it is good for 5 years. I went to my yearly check up in October and I was asked about birth control and I told that i had an IUD. They checked and told me that they couldn’t find an IUD and that it may have fell out but I knew for a fact that wasn’t the case.

 

They sent me to get two types of ultrasounds the same day and i was told once again that they didn’t see an IUD. One day in the beginning of November I was at work I had a sharp pain and the bottom right of my stomach and the first thing that popped in my head was is this that IUD? But I tried to brush it off but the pain was getting worse.

 

I left work 3 hours early to go to the hospital. I went to the hospital and i told them what was going on and what the doctors was telling me so they immediately sent me to get an X-ray done.

 

The doctor came in the with a weird look on her face and said the IUD is definitely in there but its pushed up in your stomach so you will have to get surgery. She told me to call my OBGYN to schedule a date.

 

I went and talked to my OBGYN, told him everything that was going on and even showed him the Xray picture that they allowed me to take. So he also said i have to get surgery. So i asked him how would they have to get it out and he told me they would cut me right under my belly button and use a scope.

 

On December 13th I went in to get the procedure done. Instead of 1 , I was cut 3 times. One under my belly button and one on each of my side. They was able to get it out but it was broken into pieces. I was told that it had moved up to my liver.

 

When I left the hospital I was bleeding but my mom was told that it was normal. Over night I begin to bleed heavier and the pain got worse. I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and once I got to the hospital my mom told the doctors everything that was going on. They rushed me to X-rays done and then rushed me to surgery.

 

I was bleeding internally. After the surgery my mom was told that when they open me up, my ovaries was black and that they had to give me a hysterectomy. After the surgery I went into septic shock causing me to be in ICU for a few weeks.

 

I died on that surgery table. While in ICU my organ began to fail. I was on a breathing machine, I was on dialysis cause my kidneys wasn’t working right. Everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong.

 

My parents was told that i was the worst patient on the floor and that they didn’t think I was going to make it. But with faith and God the prayers that everyone sent out, I am here today. Next week I have to get myself prepare again for a second surgery to get my toes amputated by I swear I came so far and am not letting anything stop me.”
