Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) is the most widely used reversible method of contraception with minimal side effect. Uterine perforation is an uncommon complication of IUCD insertion and occurs in 1 in1000 insertion. Because of close proximity of urinary bladder to the uterus, an IUCD in rare incidence can perforate or migrate into urinary bladder. We report a case of misplaced IUCD in bladder. A combination of pelvic X-ray, 2D and 3D sonography was used to identify a missing IUCD. IUCD was successfully removed cystoscopically without any complication.
