Intrauterine Device Removal
One of the many benefits of utilizing intrauterine contraception is the typical ease with which the device can be inserted and removed. Following patient counseling, once the patient and provider have together formulated a decision to remove the device, retrieval of the apparatus can often be accomplished in a short office visit.
