I have an appointment this Thursday to remove my marena

Patient : I have an appointment this Thursday to remove my marena BC. The strings are not visible .the obgyn clinic didn't tell me if I was in for day surgery or not . I'm concerned if I need leave from my job
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. Sometimes short threads of IUCD may not be visible easily o r palpable per vaginally. So, better to go for ultrasound once to confirm the intrauterine presence of IUCD. If IUCD is in position, it can be removed in OP itself and you may not need day surgery or leave. Take care.
