Oh nice.  Haha, my first thought after seeing your title was “SUUUUUCKS!”  (But I didn’t have the cervix softener thing.)

Did she give you the numbing shot? I’ve had 2 IUDs, and the first time, the insertion was the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced (for about 5 minutes after insertion). For reference, I’ve had my bicep reattached, so it’s not like I haven’t been through some painful stuff. They didn’t give me any pain meds the first time, though. The second time, they gave me a numbing shot, and it was no big deal. I’m glad it was okay for you, though!

@kgh_isu12:  Lucky girl! My doctor just told me to load up on pain killer an hour before coming in, but that hardly helps when they keep you in the waiting room for 2.5 hours! Glad to hear it wasn’t painful for ya though!

@kgh_isu12:  Lucky! I wish my doctor had a clue what she was doing!! That’s a great idea. My insertion was a nightmare

Wow, I’ve had *2* Paragards inserted, and neither doctor recommended anything to soften the cervix.  In fact, the only reason I received a prescription pain med prior to the second insertion was because I insisted on it.  Glad you had a great experience!  I had no problems with my Paragard.  It is truly the most-hassle free bc I’ve ever used (and I’ve used several different kinds).
