What Are Symptoms of Paragard IUD Perforation?
Paragard IUDs may break or migrate, potentially causing serious injury including uterine perforation (tearing of the uterus). Uterine perforation is dangerous and may require additional surgery. For women who have been implanted with the Paragard IUD, or have had a Paragard device removed, what are the symptoms of Paragard uterine perforation?
Uterine Perforation Symptoms
The Paragard IUD is a common intrauterine birth control device. It is the only non-hormonal IUD approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States and has been available on the U.S. market since 1984.
However, according to multiple reports and the prescribing information, Paragard IUDs can break or migrate, sometimes resulting in perforation, otherwise known as tearing of the uterus or uterine perforation.
Symptoms of uterine perforation potentially caused by Paragard include:
- Pelvic pain
- Pain in the lower abdomen
- Unplanned pregnancy
IMPORTANT: If you’ve been implanted with a Paragard IUD or recently had a Paragard device removed and experienced any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. Paragard uterine perforation can be serious and even life-threatening.
Perforation of the uterus, potentially caused by a Paragard IUD, is relatively rare but can be serious and even life-threatening.

“Is Paragard perforation common?”
Uterine perforation, which can be caused by a broken Paragard IUD, is relatively rare. The prescribing information for Paragard states that “device breakage” is a possible adverse effect, but the manufacturer does not provide any information about how often it may occur.
Providers removing the Paragard are advised by the manufacturer that “Paragard can break, perforate the uterus, or be expelled.”
