I have an IUD and I’m also interested in the removal. I can’t imagine it’s any worse than insertion.

We won’t be TTC until after the wedding, fall 2015

My IUD removal hurt like hell, but it was over with in a few seconds. Getting it put in also hurt like nobody’s business, but the pain lasted for two days.

Best of luck TTC!

Edit: and as far as what removal feels like.. It’s like having something pulled through your cervix, lol. No other way to describe it. My eyes watered and I had to take a few deep breaths but once it was out, the pain faded quickly and I was fine within an hour.

I have had 2 IUD’s and the removal was a breeze! No pain after.

… with one I had a little spotting.

 

Do you have a hormonal IUD? If you do, your cycle may be a bit wonky for a few cycles.

Good luck!

I had an IUD without having any kids, getting it in hurt, getting it out pinched for a split second then it was out. SUPER easy. also, my periods were super regular pretty quickly and lighter/easier than before my IUD!

I took mine out myself. Pulled on the strings and that was that lol. Much better than going in. I also do not have kids/not planning to have kids IUD just wasn’t for me.

TogetherThroughLife:  I just got my IUD removed last month and like PPs said it’s a little uncomfortable but nothing like the insertion. It was more uncomfortable for me because my dr had a hard time finding the strings – luckily I had checked that morning in the shower and could feel the tiniest bit of string in a corner of my cervix so I told her where I found them lol – so she was digging around in there for 10 minutes or so before she could get a lock on the strings. She found them and had the IUD out in less than a minute after that. Very minimal cramping that day. I had cramping and spotting randomly for like 2-3 months after ithe IUD was inserted though, terrible! 2 days after I got the IUD removed I had Nexplanon put in (the implant that goes in your arm, lasts for 3 years) and I started spotting 2 days after I got the Nexplanon. I don’t know if it was because of the IUD removal or the Nexplanon insertion (but spotting is a symptom for both procedures, lucky me lol).

TogetherThroughLife:  My IUD removal hurt like hell!!! It also hurt going in! I had mine taken out April 10th, and got my first period May 2nd (so 22 days later). They’ve been coming like clockwork every 31 days since.

TogetherThroughLife:  I should note that I also had Skyla. I was only able to have it for a month due to being in nearly-constant pain, and had it removed after I just couldn’t tough it out any longer. My gyno said some women’s bodies just don’t tolerate foreign objects well, and that might have been why having it removed hurt so much. I wasn’t trying to scare you with my experience!

Like a previous poster, I took my (first) IUD out myself.  It was a Mirena, and I just pulled on the strings and – BINGO!  It was easy.  I had it for about 7-8 months, and had it removed because I had bad cramping with it.

I have another one now, and it’s much easier going than the last one (Mirena again this time).  Maybe the previous one just wasn’t sitting right.

TogetherThroughLife:  I had Mirena and I used to have spotting and a 5-7 day  heavy period and serious cramps (debilitating cramps that major doses of ibuprofen would only dull), after getting my mirena out I would have a little spotting but only a 2-3 day period and even that was light! 🙂 Good luck!
