no that's why they make you sign paperwork and you are supposed to get counseling before you have the IUD in they hand you the paperwork on the IUD and you have to read and sign off on the disclaimer I know this because I have one no birth control method is 100 percent effective except abstinence sorry good luck

then there was no way that was legal if you are in the US it is against the law for any doctor to perform any procedure on you without having signed consent forms and giving you information this is called informed consent

Wait, how would you not know it "fell out"? Things don't just fall outta your vagina.

One: Unless your life was in danger, you did not "have" to get an abortion; you chose to. And luckily in this country a woman has the right to chose.

Two: Of course you can sue. People can sue for anything these days. Will you win? Not on your life. The forms you signed before having the device installed protects the medical personnel and facility form frivolous law suits such as the one you want to make.

There is no way you had a BC device installed and you did not sign a form of any kind.

You are saying you didn't sign anything I think you have forgotten that you sign any paper so I would go down to the doctors office and check your file you are allowed to look at it after you do that you will know what to do next good luck

it's 99% chance you won't get pregnant you're that 1% that's why they don't say it's 100% effective because some people get pregnant with it still in there
