Hey guys, OP here! First, #14 you made me snort laughing!!! So more information, I know from an ultrasound done a few days before this that my body was trying to expell the iud. The on-call doc I talked to didn't like the amount I was suddenly bleeding and told me to go to the ER where they would most likely remove it. So yeah, I was pretty shocked when the ER doc said it wasn't there! They are certain that it's no longer in my body though and believe it came out during one of my bathroom visits the night before. And that actually makes sense to me because that's when the bleeding began and it's the only time I wouldn't have seen it. I'm doing a bit better, though I don't know what I'll do from here on out as I can't use hormonal birth control. ?

I guess you should see another hospital / Doctor, nothing is impossible in today's modern equipments and science. Good luck OP, hope you get better soon!
I'm on the IUD and let me tell you it would be impossible not to know. What probably happened is it became dislodged and is out of place. They warn you about that when they put it in. I personally believe it's worth it though, and I like the IUD better than pills or the depo provera shots.
You know birth control is not 100% fail safe, right? My friend got pregnant on the IUD and had to have an abortion because her tube burst because it was ectopic. Thay means the fetus was not growing in the uterus instead it was growing in her tube causing it to rupture and bleed out.
Actually it does guard against ectopic pregnancy- it guards against all pregnancy. It's just that when it fails there's a higher probability that the resulting pregnancy will be ectopic. But the probability of getting an ectopic pregnancy with an IUD is much lower than the probability of getting an ectopic pregnancy without any birth control.
Unfortunately it's possible to bleed it out of your system, and as you went to the hospital with heavy bleeding and it can't be found I would wager that is what happened. Hope you can get it replaced easily.
#25, the uterus does not have nerves that send pain signals to the brain like the skin does, otherwise women would probably die from pain during child birth. So no, implanting the chain in the uterine wall is not painful. The only thing that might get a bit painful is that they have to open the cervix slightely to get the chain and tool inside the uterus. It's not very bad though, just feels like period cramps.
