Ayanda Thabethe Shares Her Scary IUD Experience

Ayanda Thabete recently opened up about her frightening experience with using an Intrauterine device (IUD), after seeing a Tik Tokker share her experience. While IUD’s are known for being more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy, complications like pelvic inflammatory disease, perforation, and displacement or falling out can occur.

The Tik Tokker that Ayanda responded to, who goes by the handle @monicagreatgal, described the excruciating pain she went through when the doctor inserted her IUD.

Ayanda quoted the tweet and revealed that her IUD got displaced following insertion and that she had to get it removed through surgery.

“Tried this years ago… this thing disappeared in my body – had to get x-rays done and ultimately surgery to get it out. Yho women go through the mostest,” she wrote.

Plenty of other women shared their experiences in the tweet as well. Some experienced pain and complications while others reported that they had pleasant experiences as well.
