Woman’s IUD ‘eroded’ through her uterus and punctured her bladder

A 47-year-old woman who complained to her doctor of blood in her urine turned out to have an unusual diagnosis: Her copper intrauterine device (IUD), which she’d received a decade earlier, had perforated her bladder and a bladder stone had formed on it, according to a new report. 

Doctors believe the IUD had gradually “eroded” through her uterus and into her bladder, a rare complication of the device, according to the report, published in the January issue of the journal Case Reports in Women’s Health.
