We get it — a removal procedure is NOT a great time to keep track of what happened! After a surgery, we would probably be more worried about what flavor of ice cream to eat with our hot pack when we got home. However, if you had to have a prolonged procedure during the planned removal of the Paragard ~OR~ you had to have a secondary procedure after the planned removal, it’s likely that the IUD fractured either before or during the removal process. If you have access to your medical records or can give your doctor or healthcare facility a call to confirm with them whether there was breakage, this could help jumpstart your potential case! Once you are connected with a firm, they can do a deeper dive into your medical records as well. All that said — we encourage you to fill out the questionnaire to the best of your ability — we may have enough information to pair you with a firm, even if you don’t feel like you have all the answers, or we can help you with exactly what to ask your doctor if you are able to get in touch with them.
