Intrauterine contraceptive devices have been in use for a long time as family planning measures, one of its complications of perforating the uterus and migrating into the peritoneal cavity is also well known. Retrieval in such cases depends on the location of the migrated intrauterine devices and involves laparotomy or laparoscopy. We present here such a case that migrated partially into the lumen of the rectosigmoid and was successfully removed using a colonoscope.
