I am a 29 year old woman who has been diagnosed with solitary rectal ulcer syndrome after undergoing colonoscopy which was previously diagnosed as piles. I have been suffering from bleeding rectum for the past 9 years. I have constipation and have to use my finger to remove my faces from the rectum. I take dulcoflex regularly but that doesnt help much. In course of the diagnosis I was also diagnosed with gall stone which I got removed through lap choly 15 days back. I have been suffering from bulimia for the past 11 years and have the habit of vomiting whatever I eat by drinking a lot of water. It is a habit now and I can't get over it. Due to bulimia my menses have stopped. But my prime concern at the moment is my bleeding rectum I want a permanent treatment for it as it is hampering my work and I feel very weak due to regular bleeding and I can't concentrate on my work as I am in a calling profile its quite hectic and I find it difficult to manage my work with this problem. One more thing to add is I get my feet and face swollen due to protein leakage from my urine. I have to take drips of albumin every year. Please help me.

If you are thinking of adopting one of the effective birth control measures, you can try an intrauterine device (IUD). An IUD is a small plastic device which is placed in the uterus and it helps in preventing the pregnancy. A plastic string is attached to one end for ensuring proper placement and for removal. An IUD can be removed easily and is a reversible birth control method. There are several advantages and disadvantages of using IUDs.
There are two types of IUDs which are commonly used. They are as follows:
- Hormonal IUDs: In case of hormonal IUDs, a small amount of progestin is released into the lining of the uterus. This hormone is similar to the progesterone hormone. This hormone helps in thickening the cervical mucus, thereby, making it difficult for the entry of sperm into the cervix. The growth of the uterine lining is slowed down, which makes fertilised eggs inhospitable.
- Copper IUDs: In this form of IUD, a tiny amount of copper gets released into the uterus. Sperm is prevented from entering the egg as they get immobilised on the way to the fallopian tubes.
- Most women who have used this contraceptive device are satisfied with them, according to surveys.
- A woman using an IUD is protected from pregnancy totally and no other preventive measures such as taking a pill every day is required.
- These devices start working as soon as they are fitted and can easily be removed.
- They can be implanted in the uterus four weeks after giving birth to a baby or after an abortion.
- Breastfeeding is safe for women using copper IUDs.
- Using IUDs enables a woman to smoke cigarettes and high blood pressure is prevented.
- Women who use hormonal IUDs experience less blood loss during menstruation and less pain.
- IUDs can be used for several years.
- IUDs are quite expensive.
- IUDs can only be removed by a health professional.
- These devices do not provide protection from any sexually transmitted disease or HIV.
- The insertion of IUDs can cause a genital infection in the uterus and lead to pelvic inflammatory diseases.
- There are chances of an IUD getting misplaced in the uterus, which may lead to pregnancy and injuries as well. The wall of the uterus may get punctured upon insertion of this device, leading to cramping, backache and excessive uterine bleeding accompanied by pain.
It is important that you must consult a doctor before thinking of getting an IUD fitted. Several screenings and tests need to be carried out before deciding upon the IUD that would work best for you.
If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
