Ectopic IUD contraceptive. Coloured 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of an axial section through the lower abdomen of a woman, showing an ectopic (abnormally positioned) intrauterine device (IUD, centre, T-shaped). An IUD is a piece of plastic or metal that inhibits pregnancy by preventing the fertilised egg from embedding in the uterine wall. The IUD here should be inside the uterus. At left and right are the bones of the pelvis and at top is the spine.
