19. An IUD Can Create Tears In Your Uterus
Oh, all the horror stories about rogue IUDs getting lost or tearing up the insides of the uterus? Not true! IUDs, even if they magically detach themselves from your uterus can't "get lost," because where the hell are they going to go? Walk out of your vagina and hitch a ride downtown? And while minimal tears can happen during the insertion of an IUD the likelihood of this happening is so minute that it's less than 1%.
