🙁 that really sucks I’m sorry. I am on my second mirena but after how much getting this one put in hurt I am not sure I can do number 3. Get some rest and enjoy your ice cream! And definitely go for the anesthesia next time since for me the actual putting it in was the worst part. Have you had kids?

I have the mirena….I felt a little crapping at first, but not to bad. I never heard of it not going in. Are you going to try again? Would you consider other methods?

I have two kids and it did not go in beautifully either time I’m sad to say! I had c-sections though so they said it would be more painful for me. And my periods didn’t really stop, I skip some ocassionally,  they are really light, and very little cramping so they are much better, but still hanging around. I really like the Mirena for the most part but like I said not sure about time number 3!

My doctor waited until I was on my period since your cervix is already a little dilated at that time. Did your doctor do that as well or was it on a non-period day? If not then you might want to schedule your appointment during that time. It probably will still hurt but at least it might go in better.

Oh, mine hurt SO BAD going in, but I did like it for those 5 years.  After a few months (maybe 6?) I was down to pantiliners for a couple days and that was the extent of my period.  Loved that.

Be VERY glad that they didn’t force it.

My doc had exactly the same problem, but forced it anyway, and (sorry TMI) the hook ended up in my muscle. And my doc does it all the time (she says), and had never had a problem before me.

The aftermath was most painful couple of hours of my life, and I had to have it taken out the same night. I’ve been told that I ought to go to a specialist who will use a nerve block. I haven’t attempted it, but I’ve been tempted.

I have no kids and I was so so so crampy during insertion. But now almost a year later, I get light spotting every few months. Good luck girl! It’s so worth it!

I had my OBGYN put it in after 6 weeks of the C-section with my daughter. It went in perfectly but it was painful. Not too bad though, only for a couple days of cramping. After a few months I was period-free. 🙂

Oh gosh, what an awful prolonged experience!  Hugs, ibuprofen, and heating pads to you! 

Mine hurt like a biatch going in, but after about 6 months I had pretty much no period, so that was pretty awesome.  In fact, after I got it removed I went on Seasonale again, so with only 4 pretty light periods a year, I’m still using, like, 6 year old femine hygeine products that I stopped using while I had the IUD!  I only ever had to use a liner for a couple days a month. 

Hope you feel better and it works out long term!
