This should be quite straightforward to do. A contraception implant (IUD) is often removed during menstruation because the cervix is naturally softened at that time. It is a similar process as to when you first had it inserted. Once the IUD strings are located, a qualified professional will remove the IUD by using forceps to get hold of the strings and slowly pull out the IUD at a certain angle. The flexible arms of the IUD will fold up as the IUD slides through the opening of the cervix. Occasionally, the strings slip up into the cervix and need to be “teased” back down with some small forceps before gently pulling it out. Hope this explains it simply.
