IUD users are estimated more than 100 million in the world. In Indonesia, the percentage of IUD users is 6.97%. Serious complications from an IUD both during insertion and using are rare, dislocation is one of the complication. The initial detection of dislocation is by touching the thread at the cervix, examining the sondage and pelvic photographs. Management of IUD dislocation is by laparotomy or laparoscopy.
