I got mine removed the end of July and it didn’t hurt at all compared to having the darn thing put in. I thought I was going to die. Anyhow it was super easy, no pain. I did take 3 Advil though to be on the safe side. I know you are not TTC yet, but I was and got pregnant on my 2nd cycle (but MC’ed), it was nice to know my body went back to normal after.  I got my period 2 days later so be aware of that and have some tampons etc. with you.  My period was heavier for a few days then light and much shorter then it used to be.

I had my IUD taken out in May. I had a gyno visit months earlier and they couldn’t find the strings, so they had told me taking it out could be a little more difficult. Needless to say, I was petrified. So, as the nurse is getting everything ready I mentioned about the doctor not seeing the strings the last time and she looks at these long scissor like things and says she will need a different tool in that case. She then whips out too lthat was twice as long- I almost left.

The doctor came in and told me she’d try to get it, but it can be painful so if she can’t get it, they’d put me out. After all of that, within about 10 seconds, the IUD was out! The doctor said the strings had reappeared since my last visit. Apparently if you bleed at all with the IUD in it can push out the strings. I basically felt nothing as it came out. I had been all worked up over nothing!  

I got my period about 25 days later and it was light, minimal cramping. I have since had my period every 30-31 days and it has been heavy and I’ve been cramping…I miss the IUD. We just started actively TTC last month, so fingers crossed it happens this month! 

Good luck with the removal- it was easier than a pap.

It is not too bad but make sure to bring a pad or panty linner I bled a bit after getting mine out (might be common sense but I did realize it at the time lol…)

I got my mirena iud out in June. It took about 2 seconds and it did not hurt at all. I had really light two day long periods every 27-28 days since, and we just started trying last cycle. I didn’t get a BFP, but I did get a period that was longer and more like an actual period. When I was a teen (which was pretty much the last time I had a period since I have been on depo and then mirena with no periods) I used to have the worst cramps and I would throw up all the time from them too. My last period was more like a normal period and the cramps were pretty mild and no more nausea. I have read that cramps can naturally decline when you get older and it seems to for me!

@o0olibelulao0o:  It was way less painful to have the IUD removed. It took all of 5 seconds for the doctor to remove the IUD. I had the non-hormonal paragard, so my cycles haven’t changed since the removal.

@o0olibelulao0o:  This post was very comforting to me. I am getting my IUD out on November 7th and have heard nothing but horror stories so I was getting nervous.

Now that it is November, I’m getting mine out this month.  Eeeek!  Getting closer to TTC is kind of terrifying.  But awesome.

I am getting mine taken out in December, but then having a new one inserted. It’s nice to know that removal should be fairly painless. Hopefully the insertion does not hurt as much as it did the first time….ugh, it probably will.

I never had an IUD in, but my cousin did, and she got pregnant 2nd cycle after getting it taken out!

I have a consultation appointment to switch out my Mirena for Implanon. Anyone have experience with both? Where your side effects similar for both? Or is Implanon more like Depo (which is what I’ve heard)?
