    Ugh!   My doctor gave me a prescription for this but Im not gonna do it, not because of the pain but for other reasons.     Now I definitely wont.   I guess everyone has a different pain tolerance

    It was bad but so worth it at the end! I love the convenience of it. I spotted for a month after. I was also bloated for a few days (like I wear size 6 jeans but had to pull out the 10s and use the hair band method on the button).

    Should done some googling, girl! That definitely taught me that it would hurt like hell. 

    That was 3 years ago and I can tell you that it was SO WORTH IT!!

    I just put paragard in yesterday…the whole process was so painful..I thought I would die..Right after the appointment it was hurting badly..then it got better…However, when I woke up today it has been inside for over 24 hrs already and I still have mild period-like-cramps..

    My concern is about bleeding…I was bleeding yesterday right after the procedure..today, spotting continues…is it normal? anyone else experinced the same thing?

    The cramping sucked. I wiggled my toes like crazy and said, “Oooo, that hurts.”, and then it was over. I had minor cramps for the next day or two and immediately went grocery shopping when I left the clinic. It was definitely worth it. I haven’t had any kids and didn’t take anything before insertion.

    I get it out next year and am hoping it won’t be as bad to remove it.

    @MRSsrm85:  I am bloated too…like crazy..

    Did you have spotting everyday for the first month? or only once in a while? What about your period? Did it get back to normal right away?

    @SashaUSARu:  I spotted for a solid 2-3 months with Mirena before my periods stopped completely. As for spotting from the insertion, they gave me a pad when I left.

    @hisprettygirl:  I had a mirena and haven’t given birth (FWIW, my Mirena also rejected at about a year, but I also didn’t totally love it). I had several friends who had a Mirena (or other IUD) already and they all had such different experiences. Only one person was like, “Oh barely hurt! Put those in all day! No prob!”. I also had a friend who legit blacked out during insertion. They can give you a (prescription) medication to help dialate your cervix, which from what I’ve read seems to help with pain levels somewhat – but not all the way. The sounding hurt the worst for me and I swear, I saw stars. It hurt so bad that I was like, “Give me a minute”. I didn’t know if I could go through with insertion. I like to think that I have a good pain threshold, but dude, OUCH.

    @SashaUSARu:  spotting I’d definitely normal. If you’re still worried in a few days, feel free to call your obgyn, but yeah – definitely normal. It gets better! I’ve had my Paraguard for 3 years and I love it !!

    @SashaUSARu:  Spotting is normal. I would worry if it was heavy bleeding. I basically just had a light period until my periods stopped. Panty liner-type bleeding.

    @hisprettygirl:  I’ve had mine for a year now (and haven’t given birth before) and I thought the insertion hurt a lot! My doctor had told me it would hurt a bit and a friend of mine said her’s only for a day or so, but I wasn’t prepared for what it actually felt like. Also, I was hoping it would make my periods stop, hasn’t happened yet Frown
