Which one are you getting? I’m assuming the hormone one? I use the copper IUD. If this is your first hormonal BC you might have a bit of nausea, but if you’ve been on BC for a while, probably not going to be an issue. Definitely eat though because you are going to need to be sure to take ibuprofen before that appointment. You will cramp. It will hurt. If you have bad period cramps, expect the same, if you don’t, expect cramping of some type. Also, it will help your blood sugar in general for the procedure, and you never know sometimes what will make you woosy when it comes to these types of things. I got mine in October and it’s been awesome! No complications at all! Good luck!

Oh, also plan to take the rest of the day off work, and possibly the following day depending on your camping…

I didn’t feel anything but cramping make sure you take some pain reliever before your appointment and you will be fine

I had nausea each of the three times I’ve had an IUD inserted, but I tend to get nauseous when I have cramps. It passed fairly quickly every time. Definitely ensure you’ve eaten enough; you might want to take some ibuprofen for pain relief and you shouldn’t take it without something in your stomach. Good luck!

Well played! I had no idea what I was getting myself into…I didn’t know my OBGYN was going to basically punch me in my uterus. She had to send me home with narcotics I was in such bad shape!

I second the ibuprofen!  But no nausea for me just bad cramps for a few hours! Good luck!

I didn’t have nauseau, but it hurts like a bitch! Take 4 ibuprofen beforehand (or something stronger if you can) and be prepared to curl up with a hot water pad (and a bottle of wine?!) after. Soooo worth it though! Good luck.

Hi lady, you saw my other thread. I’m about 7 hours after insertion right now. I’ve been (mildly) nauseated all day and have consumed about 600 calories so far (including what I ate before). I can’t get anymore down. I got home from work, went to bed and am now drinking chicken broth. I had cashews and protein water immediately after the procedure but it was all I could stomach.

I would NOT do it on an empty stomach tho. The pain of your stomach+the pain in your uterus? No way. It would have been very uncomfortable for me. Unless you’re the type that frequently vomits from pain (I’m totally not). I had a fiber browie immediately before and am thankful I did, I was hungry.

Good luck tomorrow..Sending positive vibes your way..If you think of it, PM me with how you are doing after. I forget, have you had kids before?

For me the pain of insertion lasted a few second- but it was intense.  I had ongoing cramping the rest of the day and was glad I took the day off work.  No naseau though.

A word of warning that I found out the hard way, if you are prone to ovarian cysts and you have one that you don’t know about when the IUD is placed it will hurt A LOT. I had cramping so bad that I couldn’t stand for more than 30 seconds without crumbling back to the floor. I actually went to the ER because it was so bad and I thought they perforated my uteran wall, but turns out it was just an angry cyst. Since then I’ve had mild cramping that has become less so as the months have past. The inconsisent spotting is probably the most annoying also because mine will go weeks at a time. Other than that I really do like the Mirena IUD. I’m very prone to nausea and rarely had a day without it before the IUD and by some miracle it’s become less common and/or less severe in nature. It’s nice not wanting to throw up all the time.

eat something so you don’t pass out… the pain is short but definitely there.
