Sarah’s Story. Ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

This is the second time I’ve had an iud, the first one was when I was 16 and I had the skyla iud until I was 19 and had to get it replaced. My doctor recommended the depo shot to help me gain weight and I experienced extreme mood swings and mania so I didn’t get my second one then when I was 20 I got my second skyla iud and experienced a ruptured ectopic pregnancy at 21 and had to have emergency surgery ever since then I’ve had anxiety about having an iud even though my doctor told me it was one in a million chance that could happen.
