My wife has recently gotten an IUD and, coincidentally, has been complaining about an increase in (lower) back pain. She did some poking around on the net and found a bunch of people who claimed some link between the two (I believe entirely anecdotal, not medical information). Can this possibly be right? What on earth (or, more accurately, in her body) would cause this?
Some possibly relevant information:
[li]When she sits for a time at her desk and then stands up, it seems to be aggravated.[/li][li]She had some minor back pain before getting the IUD, but nothing that she’d complain about.[/li][li]She goes to the gym and does yoga, but the pain doesn’t affect her then (i.e., it’s not due to physical exertion).[/li][li]The pain is worse when she bends backward than forward.[/li][/ul]
Any information would be appreciated – a link between the two makes no sense to me.
