An IUD can leave the uterus and travel through the human body.

Fact: The device almost always stays in the uterus until it is removed by a health worker. If it does come out it will come out through the vagina. To be sure that the IUD is in place, women are advised to check for their IUD strings following each menstrual cycle.
