@classical_wolf:  Welcome to the club! 😉 I’m 4.5 years into having mine, I love it! Due to get a new one early next year. That’s 4.5 years with no periods, bliss! I hope you have as great success with yours!

I would love to something like that, but I’m horrible with pain. 

I was thinking of doing Essure since they knock you out for it.

@classical_wolf:  I’m thinking of getting this and am asking my gyno about it next week.  Have you (or anyone else) ever gotten a colposcopy?  Those are pretty painful and I was wondering how it compares to that?

I was wondering how it went, glad it was a success! I went for a consultation today with another Dr since mine didn’t work last week. He suggested the skyla but wants to do a sonogram of my uterus first.

@MsLabRat:  I’ve had a colpo and an IUD is infinitely worse!! I have never had a child so my cervix was tight and it didn’t go in the first time and I threw up off the side of the gyno table I was in so much pain! It went in the second time she tried as i was screeching in pain!

But for those 20 minutes of pain i have had 3 years no periods and that is soooooooo worth it!

I’m surprised to hear all of you talk about the pain. I have a smaller cervix, have never had children and mine didn’t hurt much at all. It felt like a menstrual cramp for a few seconds. No medication or anything either (for some I know they give a pill for them to ‘open up’).  Everyone’s experience will be different so don’t assume it will be super painful! I love my Mirena and I would do it all over again even if for some reason I did expenience more pain then I did. And congrats! 🙂
