Perforation of the uterus is rare but potentially fatal. During puerperium when the uterus is small and its wall is thin, the risk of perforation increases. We report a rare complication from an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) which caused deviation of the right ureter in a 31-year-old woman who presented with complaints of insomnia and abdominal pain. Our case shows that perforation of the uterus by an IUD can cause a silent urological complication. The possibility of ureteral involvement and displacement should be kept in mind in a woman in whom a missing IUD is encountered.
