Intrauterine device (IUD) is a well-accepted means of contraception. Although it is safe and effective, some serious complications may occur. It should be paid attention to a 45-year-old female admitted to the hospital for aggravated abdominal pain and dyspareunia for 2 months. She was found to have two IUDs in her body, one in the uterine cavity and the other outside. They were removed through laparoscopic and hysteroscopy. When IUD perforation occurs, whether symptomatic or not, surgical removal is necessary. Laparoscopy is thought to be the first choice. However, when serious adhesions coexist, laparotomy would be recommended.
