  • You could puncture your uterus causing internal bleeding if you pull it out wrong....

  • You can perforate your uterus o damge your cervix. I would really not recomment doing this yourself. Go to your local health dept or planned parenthood if you don't have insurance. You don't want to hurt yourself

  • if its half out already. i would pull it out but if you just want it out i suggest u go to a Dr and them do it .. mine was 90 percent out already it was hurting so i finished getting it out but unless its that bad don't touch it.
